On March 3, 3017, a small group of changemaking, entrepreneurial women will host the first ever Happiness Retreat at the Kimpton Goodland Hotel in Goleta, Ca. The Happiness Retreat is billed as an event solely for women and meant to inspire, relax and nourish the body and soul.

At this 3 day, 2 night retreat, participants will attend unique workshops, relax by the pool and enjoy farm-to-table meals under the stars. Topics of focus will include elevating personal health, quieting negative internal chatter, learning to meal plan like a ninja, improving relationships, reducing stress levels and much more, while simultaneously creating lasting connections and setting measurable personal goals.

Wednesday, Feb. 22, 6-8PM, 508 E. Haley St. 

As some of you know, LoaTree has teamed up with the Lost Art of Love Letters in developing a series of ‘Expression Sessions’ encouraging letter writing on a number of important topics. Join us next Wednesday, Feb. 22 between 6pm and 8pm at our downtown office (508 E. Haley St. Santa Barbara) for our next installment. In light of recent events, this month’s theme is ‘Immigrants and Immigration.’

Expression Sessions are action-based community gatherings combining art and activism in the form of letter writing. Each individual is invited to tap into their deepest emotions about the state of our world and voice their opinions, cares and concerns by writing handwritten letters aimed at making a difference.
