Restore the Vis
Aguanga, California

October 5th-6th, 2019


Pioneering the way in Southern California....

The Restore the Vis Retreat brings doctors from all over the United States and Canada to share the wisdom of Naturopathic medicine and inspire hundreds of future and practiced holistic healers. The Retreat is an immersive experience focused on reinvigorating the healing power of nature while cultivating integrative mindsets. Students and doctors, from multiple schools in the Southwest co-create in expanding knowledge while participating in self healing and community building exercises. As a non-profit and sustainably organized event, we hope to continually grow and share the vision of healing mind, body, and spirit. We hope this message inspires you to share our dream of a world that finds its way back to nature.

This will be the 7th time the Restore the Vis Retreat is being hosted by Bastyr California Students.
