Return to Freedom ranch is the perfect venue for your group’s next retreat
Located in the California hills, about 2 ½ hours north of Los Angeles, we make Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary available on a limited basis to a variety of organizations for 1- or 2-day group functions and retreats. Here groups enjoy a unique opportunity to come together in a sanctuary that opens the heart and magic of the natural world.
Features and Amenities
Return to Freedom is a 310-acre ranch that is home to the American Wild Horse Sanctuary. The Sanctuary offers dozens of quiet, outdoor settings for meetings, programs and a variety of group and solitary activities.
Consider a walking meditation through herds of wild horses. Or, while enjoying our grounds, climb a magical tree house in our 60-acre oak forest—a perfect spot for contemplation, meditation, yoga or special times with your groups.
And we are only 10 miles from one of the most beautiful beaches in south-central California. Enjoy a morning swim or walk on the beach. With breathtaking cliffs and pounding surf, it’s one that you’ll remember for years to come.
To compliment your stay, additional amenities are also available. These include massage, yoga instruction, and herbalist walks.
Tours, Walks and Clinics Are Also Available
Included in your retreat is a tour of our ranch. But watch out! Many of our visitors eagerly spend much of their time involved in daily ranch chores and activities. There is no better way to feel exercised and relaxed at the end of a day.
You have a choice of accommodations for your group. Some groups prefer to camp out on the hills and spend the entire time in the beauty of our Sanctuary. For those who choose not to “rough it,” there are a variety of motels in nearby Lompoc that range from moderate to business class. When you call to set up your retreat, we can put you in touch with the accommodation of your choice.
How to Arrange a Retreat for Your Group
Retreats are arranged on an individual basis. They can be scheduled on weekdays or weekends when there are no other scheduled events or activities at the ranch. The cost for a retreat is based on a sliding scale, and varies with each group.
Please contact us for schedules, fees and other information. We are happy to hear from you.
