Mindful Meetings at MacArthur
MacArthur Place offers natural luxury and farmhouse charm in the heart of Sonoma, making it a premier destination in Northern California for team meetings, executive retreats, and off-site gatherings. In addition to offering a variety of modern indoor and verdant outdoor meeting spaces across our newly-reimagined six-acre property, we are excited to introduce an exclusive menu of mindful offerings designed to provide freedom from stress, sensory awakening, physical renewal, personal connection and, of course, productivity. Any or all of these offerings, in addition to a mindful food and beverage menu, can be added to your event, for group sizes up to 30.
Kombucha Workshop | Revive Kombucha
Learn the art and science of making kombucha, the fermented tea elixir much-touted since its inception in ancient China for its healthful probiotics, minerals and antioxidants that detoxify and improve digestion, increase energy and mental acuity. Revive, a local, family-owned craft kombucha brewery, will lead an informative and interactive kombucha 101 session including tastings and instructions on making your own. Each participant will take home their own SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast), and a kombucha recipe to inspire their home brewing.
