Venue Setting

This one of a kind sanctuary at the intersection of the Pacific Coast and Mendocino’s Anderson Valley is a response to the suggestion that our purpose in life is to create connection. A training ground that fosters the much needed elements of empathy, compassion, and attention, the Land is the door to a more connected life.

Community operated, The Land exists between the once isolated monasteries of the world, and the hustle of the marketplace, providing vital access to the latest advances in mind, body and spiritual wellness. The Land is at the forefront of the hottest new wellness trend, Connection Training. Cell phones and texting are encouraged, and there is fiber optic WIFI throughout the central lodge and cabin hub.

Keeping in mind that fulfillment is a way of life, and at the root of that way of life is a sense of connecting, The Land is designed to be more a co-creative experience than a resort — It is a lifestyle that emerges when you practice a set of principles that allow for intimacy with your life. From the most physical expression to the most spiritual – it is the fundamental discovery that what you are intimate with, you experience as divine. Including yourself.

From artists to writers, teachers to healers, everyone has a seat at the table. There are a few ways visitors can plug in, create and transform. You can bring your teams and companies, bring your family and friends for a wedding,sign up for one of our programs, or come on personal retreat.

The Scene:

This one of a kind sanctuary at the intersection of the Pacific Coast and Mendocino’s Anderson Valley is a response to the suggestion that our purpose in life is to create connection. A training ground that fosters the much needed elements of empathy, compassion, and attention, the Land is the door to a more connected life.

The Land is at the forefront of the hottest new wellness trend, Connection Training. Cell phones and texting are encouraged, and there is fiber optic WIFI throughout the central lodge and cabin hub.

Keeping in mind that fulfillment is a way of life, and at the root of that way of life is a sense of connecting, The Land is designed to be more a co-creative experience than a resort — It is a lifestyle that emerges when you practice a set of principles that allow for intimacy with your life. From the most physical expression to the most spiritual – it is the fundamental discovery that what you are intimate with, you experience as divine. Including yourself.

From artists to writers, teachers to healers, everyone has a seat at the table. There are a few ways visitors can plug in, create and transform. You can attend one of our personal or couples retreats, bring your teams and companies, sign up for one of our programs, or attend our monthly community days.

Design:
The founder of the Trunk Club for men and her design team transformed the interiors of the cabins, glamping tents and renovated the houses to mix rustic chic interiors with indulgent satiating comfort for optimal sleep and play. 

We have a 100 year old barn, a 75 year old redwood lodge and have done a great job embracing the bones of the historic property and updating it with the amenities that make it a world class retreat center. 
Standout Venue Features:
Historic trees of up to 1000-years old dot the property, with the renowned Redwood Grove in Hendy Woods State Park, accessible from The Land by trail. The headwaters of the Navarro River is a significant feature of The Land experience. Bordering the property for thousands of feet with the Rancheria, Anderson and Indian creek tributaries in close proximity to the property makes for great swimming holes and river walks. The miles of forested trails are great for hiking and exploring.

There are 9 houses, 18 cabin units and 12 glamping tents on The Land.

Designed and established with the guidance of the Findhorn mystics, and the local Daily Bread landscape team, The Land’s garden will be a place for teaching and demonstration. The Land’s head gardener, Andy Baldessari was part of the team that developed the gardens 30 years ago.

While calling The Land an eco-retreat might be going too far, our decisions are always guided by our imperative of being responsible stewards of the land and good neighbors. We’ve always loved old buildings and old things, and like to think these objects possess a spirit of the past and that history has some weight and substance. Secondly, it just makes sense from several perspectives to reuse our resources whenever possible. Most of the buildings at The Land are old.

The fields and grounds are managed for the 50 species of birds, the deer, wild turkey (we have quite a few), wildflowers and the natural faun and flora on the Land.

We realize there is a long way to go and many efforts we can make, and we do believe we are headed in the right direction

The Land

18501 Van Zandt Resort Road, Philo, CA, USA

Created in partnership with our friends at The Land.


Deep in the hills of Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley, just over two hours from San Francisco, sits a sprawling property of rolling hills, towering redwood trees and fields full of wildflowers. Known as The Land, this spot has been trending in the corporate retreat and team building scene since it opened, offering groups a chance to cultivate community and get outside their norm. Here your team can spend a few days focusing on meditation in the wilderness, eating nutritious foods, wandering trails and rivers, and connecting to the earth together.
