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.

A restorative girls’ weekend: wholesome, flavorful lovingly prepared food; meditation, mindfulness and yoga. 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. 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/
Nothing can compare to the magic of Joshua Tree and the California High Desert — it is all about healing, adventures, restoration. It’s a place you’ll leave feeling grounded, maybe even elevated to higher level of self-awareness.
