Workshops - Rancho La Puerta

You’ll wish you had more than a week

Each week, we invite noted guest speakers, talented performers and workshop leaders—authors, politicians, musicians, artists and other leaders in their fields—to present afternoon learning experiences and evening lectures. (See Events Calendar.). Our own staff members are experts in many fields and may also present exciting evening lectures.

A hidden gem. Seems people only hear of it via word of mouth. It’s a mental and physical reset for us every year.
