The

Lab

At the end of the end of the end of a road, nestled in a remote valley of the Santa Monica mountains, is Commune Topanga — a laboratory for living and learning on 10 acres of meandering paths, oak trees, and organic gardens.

Our Lab is where the ideas and practices embraced by Commune play out in real life. It is a gathering place for inspiring teachers and thought leaders. It is a setting to slow down and shift your brain to long-wave thoughts. It is a place to practice, plant, and cook.

But, most of all, the Lab is designed to foster deep levels of connection between people, face-to-face. Whether around the long dinner table or in the yoga studio, on the floor of the tea house or in the countless nooks and epic perches throughout the property,
 Commune Topanga is a place to do just that: commune. We commune with a higher spirit, we commune with nature, and, most importantly, we commune with each other.

Each week, we will give you a peek into the many projects percolating in the Lab: solar installations, soil regeneration, beekeeping, treehouses, and much more. We'll feature the insights of the many experts sharing their wisdom on the property, and, 
from time to time, we will host Commune events.

What is Acceptance?
Aug 13, 2019

The true beauty of our community here can be summed up in that very word. Living in community allows us to grow in our connection to ourselves, to our world, and to each other — but it also comes with challenges. How do I smooth over disagreements? How do I see the other side of […]

Meeting a Neighbor
Apr 24, 2019

Returning to our roots means reminding ourselves of our place in the greater puzzle and respecting the role of others. A recent development at the Lab has been a nightly cadence of hoots from two owls. We’d never seen them but their serenade was hard to miss. But during dinner one night, 9-year-old Micah runs […]

Surrender to Wim
Apr 24, 2019

When we say honor the teacher, we mean honor their wisdom and experience. The best way to travel a land you’ve never been to before is with the humility of a stranger and that sometimes means relying on directions and trusting the process. So when Wim Hof stopped by and decided to throw an impromptu […]

A Place for the Heart
Apr 24, 2019

What is heart-centered living? Living through emotional intelligence. Stepping into what feels right and connected. Finding purpose and meaning in your actions. Working intentionally with human energies. Getting intuitive about the unseen and unknown. Pulling back the curtain on what is. Pushing the boundaries of what’s comfortable in order to find what’s right. Accepting the […]
