For many centuries different Native American tribes would meet and gather in the hills above what is now Calistoga to trade their goods, share their wisdom, and heal their bodies and minds. The land was specifically chosen due to its ideal climate and legendary purifying and detoxifying qualities. Pure air sourced from ancient redwoods and mineral enhanced volcanic soil and spring water provided clarity, physical rejuvenation and an unmatched environment to work out the challenges facing their communities. Accordingly, it became a long-standing gathering place for wisdom, community and healing.
