Medicine Wheel

Retreat Center & Healing Sanctuary
Occidental, CA

Founded in 2020 By Jonathan Pinkston L.AC. MSOM

Medicine Wheel's named is a nod to his Cherokee ancestry,  the mysticism of the 4 directions cosmology and the circular 90' mandala garden that exists on the land.

We hope to cary the legacy of our local Pomo culture forwards into the present day, honoring the things that have come before and what is blooming ahead.


A Retreat Center
A Way of Life


Hosting personalized retreats, group trainings and one-on-one healing sessions.


Just 20 mins west of Sebastopol, our property overlooking the Pacific Ocean, was once a native Pomo village site.  After thousands of years of human settlement here, we hope to be a beacon of light in a changing world.  With a 1,000sqft main teaching loft and access to 60,000 acres of neighboring protected land, we are a perfect launching point into your next retreat.


Come feel it for yourself, this is a special place to be.
