Communion Weekend Retreat

 with Schuyler Grant & Jeff Krasno

Topanga, CA // March 31 - April 2, 2023

com·mun·ion /kəmyoonyən/ - the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings

Join Jeff Krasno and Schuyler Grant for an intimate weekend of the good life – sweaty yoga, scrumptious food, thoughtful discussions, and nighttime storytelling. Springtime is glorious in Topanga and a perfect time to pollinate mental and physical wellbeing. Schuyler will focus on developing your physiological strength and flexibility with a blend of challenging and introspective modalities. Jeff, host of the Commune podcast, will lead a discussion on holistic health (with a special guest TBA) and treat you to evening fireside readings of some of his favorite Commusings essays. Throughout it all, the Commune Topanga chef will delight with farm-sourced, nourishing fare.

Our Playground 

At the end of the end of the end of a road, perched atop a remote valley of the Santa Monica mountains, sits Topanga Commune: 10 acres of meandering paths, oak trees, palms and gardens abutting state land. You won’t believe you are less than an hour from the heart of LA.

The property has a main house, a guest house, four tea house private rooms, three sweet A-Frame cabins, and plenty of space for camping. Sleep on organic mattresses and linens and enjoy the bounty of LA’s best local farmers for every home-cooked meal.

The property also has a sauna, hot tub, plunge pool, basketball, badminton, and a plethora of hammocks.

Songwriter Neil Young lived on this property for many years and was deeply inspired by this magical spot. If there is anywhere in the world to find “a heart of gold,” it may be here.

“I want to live, I want to give. I've been a miner for a heart of gold. It's these expressions I never give that keep me searching for a heart of gold.” ~ Neil Young
