I'm heading down the coast of California for the first time with a few friends. Were stopping at all the major cities near the water. Portland, Humbolt, San Fran, LA, Santa Barbara, San Diego to name a few.
I'm wondering if anyone could suggest good places to stop. I'm really interested in seeing beautiful nature, spiritual places/centres, good concert venues, yoga studios/ashrams, good places to meet other people passionate about 80/10/10, etc. Anything is valuable :)
Don't know if you're already on the road or what... but definitely stop by Cafe Gratitude! Amazing raw food restaurant--it's gourmet, VERY high fat, but extraordinarily delicious, too.
Really, I suggest looking on meetup.com and crashing some raw potlucks along the way. They'll be in tune with all of the stuff you're looking for.
Have a safe, fantastic adventure!
The Aetherius Society in Los Angeles is a worthwhile ashram to visit as well as any of the SRF ashrams, especially the one in Pacific Palisades.
