Truth, beauty, healing — reaching the core of one’s energy and getting in touch with the soul. This is what Joshua Tree is about: energy and restoration. The energy of Earth throughout time is felt here in this part of California’s High Desert. Joshua Tree is long known as a place of multiple energy vortices on land — the forces of the vortex in this spiritual, ancient place magnifies everything we humans bring to it on emotional, spiritual, physical and mental levels. A place to find peace — that’s what Joshua Tree brings.
The jet-setting staple everyone needs: a SKOVA picnic rug

A restorative girls’ weekend: wholesome, flavorful lovingly prepared food; meditation, mindfulness, and yoga. Don't forget to bring your gorgeous SKOVA printed picnic rug to add to the experience. This part of the California high desert is truly magic; being in a contemporary cabin set in this desert under the stars, hearing the sound of howling wolves is transcendent.
When in an energy vortex like the one on Joshua Tree, you can gain some unexpected insight and clarity. When in a place like this, something to try is the Moon Deck, a set of tarot-like cards used to inspire women to set intentions; it works through rituals and creativity, inspiring women to lift one another up and be inspired by one another. To set a cleansing and inspirational mood, lighting incense and sage — it awakens and opens the mind to process and meditate on intentions from the Moon Deck.

When ready for some wholesome and satisfying cuisine, head to La Copine. Fresh, homemade biscuits are a hit; they offer small plates (tapas) with choices like duck and chicken mousse, ceviche de camarón with Florida rock shrimp, avocado, coconut milk and sweet potato. For an indulgence, try the papas a la plancha: duck fat fingerling potatoes. https://www.lacopinekitchen.com
What makes a brunching afternoon with a girlfriend even more fun? A little bit of shopping. Obviously, you already have your bohemian printed beach blanket and picnic rug from SKOVA. Then head to Moon Wind Trading Co. for unique pieces. It’s off the main drag on Old Woman Springs Road in Landers. The shop is decked out with Moroccan rugs and lanterns, Indonesian teak day beds, handmade clothes (repurposed from vintage fabric), blankets and tapestries. There’s also an awesome selection of bohemian capes, boots, slippers, hats, jewelry along with a selection of creams and cosmetics. This boutique is a curated gem, for sure. https://www.instagram.com/moonwindtradingco/

Once you get your first taste of travel, traveling becomes a need. I have been so fortunate and grateful to travel to various parts of this world, embracing the beauty and knowledge that different places have to offer. I believe that the most important aspect of having the privilege to travel is having respect. Respect the people, respect the culture and respect the surrounding environment.
