Today I am beyond grateful that I had the opportunity to visit this beautiful Ranch in Malibu as it was such a humbling experience. To be connected to nature and hiking for miles in these trails reminded me that this life has a deeper meaning...More

It took me a few days to reflect on my stay at The Ranch because my feelings at the Ranch have changed since I have left there and moved back to reality. The Ranch is not a vacation, but a time where one can re-boot....More
