Think Dalai Lama meets Alice Waters. At Wildsoul Enchanting Gatherings, founder Ben Crosky calls attention to his favorite Bay Area locations with a health-and-wellness-focused trifecta: yoga, farm tours, and creative culinary experiences. Through a series of on-site yoga classes followed by meals cooked from foods harvested from local farms, Crosky aims to “strengthen the ties between creator and consumer.” Sessions typically include a 90-minute outdoor yoga class, an hour-long farm tour, and a multicourse meal using ingredients sourced from neighboring farms. Learn about the history of apple orchards-turned-vineyards in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley, or sample the blue cheese from Cowgirl Creamery in Point Reyes Station, north of San Francisco. Choose from locally sourced breakfasts, wine-pairing dinners, and other events in evocative and inspiring surroundings.
