The Hostel in the Forest is an amazing treehouse village that serves as a spiritual retreat and transient home for travelers. It teaches a hands-on approach to sustainable lifestyle through practices such as alternative building and organic gardening. Covering 133 acres of forest and wetlands, the facilities include outdoor hot-water showers, an amazing lake, a cultivation glass-house, a labyrinth, a library, treehouses, and bunkhouses. It is a truly unique place and has to be seen to be believed!


The food we serve nourishes the body as well as the soul. Much of the food is organic, and lots of the vegetables come right out of the garden. It is as local as possible, and prepared by amazing culinary artists. Meals are vegetarian, served twice daily, and are eaten communally, accompanied by a connective activity beforehand. Dishes and clean up are all done together with a spirit of gratitude and festivity. Other special needs (such as Gluten free) are arranged by request. Eating together in a large group is a fun way to connect, enjoy, and reflect on our experience. 


Josh Fox L.Ac has built a life around the healing powers of plants, people, and community. He weaves herbs, song, and acupuncture into his private practice, and writes music that uplifts the heart, honors his plant allies, and tickles the human spirit. With the same gentle, grounded nature he receives patients, he regularly holds group ceremony space around grief, heart-healing, and song-sharing.​

Jon is a Life coach who has taught, inspired, and connected with people all around the world. With an unmatched quality of presence, engaging techniques, and a genuinely fierce commitment to helping people fully realize and live their true potential, he helps guide groups towards meaningful depth and vulnerability in exciting and impactful ways.


Zara has been experimenting with, gathering and sharing techniques that enliven our sense of inner and outer awareness. She quit a PhD in psychology to pursue more of what made her heart sing and eventually become a somatic movement therapist. She has been teaching movement in various forms for 10 years on four continents
