A talented team from Palomar Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will be coordinating the gathering.

Come, come whoever and however you are! Spend an enchanted weekend up in our beloved mountain retreat. Let’s explore, express, and exchange the magic that resides deep inside each of us. Bring your perfectly imperfect selves and maybe your hiking boots, yoga mat, journal, knitting needles, earbuds or any tool you use to find magic. What will be revealed to you?
