Restore the Vis
September 29 - 30, 2018
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 5th time the Restore the Vis Retreat is being hosted by Bastyr California Students.

Earthstar Farm nestled in the Garner Valley, right outside Idyllwild, Ca.
As part of the San Bernardino National Forest the farm is dotted with old growth pines that have been standing watch for hundred of years.
To the Northeast is the San Jacinto mountain range. As a standout, Tahquitz peak looms with its magnificent rock faces which were the site of the development for the original Yosemite rock climbing scale.
To the Southwest lies Lake hemet, fed by the San Jacinto river and Hurkey creek which cuts through the 40 acre property, providing an opportunity for a fresh dip in its cold waters.
The sacred valley of the Cahuila tribe still holds a great and powerful presence that is felt when one spends time wandering the natural beauty that is found there.
The Retreat unofficially starts Friday night, Sept. 28th. Showing up early provides a great opportunity to set up camp and get to know the other attendees. There will be a potluck, games, ice breakers, and talents shows taking place all night long.
The official start time will be 7am on Saturday, Sept. 29th beginning with sunrise yoga. Attendees are welcome to arrive at any time convenient to them.
