A fun, abundant year is how to describe this past season. We had our biggest year ever with lots of new people coming home to nature. We started the year off with a great winter class and ended the summer with our biggest and most powerful Earth Philosophies that we can remember.

Santa Cruz and the Central Coast

Photo of book cover

As a young child, Tim Corcoran developed a deep connection to the land and sea throughout California's central coast. The central coast was his playground. At the age of twelve, he conceived the idea of an art book that would celebrate and give thanks to the region that was such an important source of his inspiration.

Santa Cruz and the Central Coast is the realization of this idea - a realization of a dream. Tim hopes that it will inspire others to seek out the the beauty in the regions that they live, so that they, too, will be inspired to protect and save the land.

We Remember

At Headwaters we remember how we humans were meant to live with; fun, art, friends, community, nature, purpose greater than ourselves, good working brain, creativity, healthy food, dogs, hard physical work, clean water, being heard, spirituality-no dogma-just feeling it, campfires, birds, squirrels, animals everywhere, tree sitting and climbing, elders, teaching, Mt. Shasta, creeks, flowers and so much more.
