Just Outside The Yosemite Valley

New Moon Festival is designed to be a deeply profound personal experience. As such, we are taking care of all your lodging, food and basic needs so that you can focus on connecting with others, sharing your gifts and creating your own journey.


You can expect 3 delicious meals a day designed by our lead chef (formerly from Esalen Institute).


We believe that joining together in reverence of nature brings inspiration.  As such, we have chosen to host our festival in a beautiful rustic mountain retreat center that is modest, comfortable, and beautiful. To be clear, we are not recreating the Four Seasons; rather, we are creating a festival experience that will be fun, memorable and transformative.  You can expect 3 nights of a clean and  comfortable lodging experience with great amenities.  

We aim to cultivate community and connection throughout the weekend.  As such, all housing is shared housing.  What this means is that all rooms will have at least one other person in them.  For example, a queen room with private bath will have 2 people in the room.  Each room can be filled with your friends or significant others or we can match you with people who will bring new energy and connection into your life.
