​​Hi, I'm Elka Wilder.

Do you want to experience the simplest joys

in the deepest ways possible?

Imagine waking up to a sweeping vista of a desert sunrise. Maybe you are awakened by a voice, far off in the distance, that sounds more like a flute. Perhaps you spent the previous evening quietly surveying a sky full of limitless stars. Maybe you enjoyed a "Singing Sound Bath," or a blindfolded dinner, or listening to stories around a campfire, and sharing a few of your own. Perhaps you had a soak in an outdoor tub, while studying the stars, while savoring the finest chocolate truffles, rolled in a dusting of sea salt and hand-harvested rosemary, sipping an herbal cocktail or Lavender-Pine Tea with local desert sage honey. 


I've been curating personal retreats for over two decades. I work with online clients, cater, and curate private events. I'm most known in my community for my "rustic gourmet" cuisine and the "Tea and Song" ceremonies I offer at the biannual  Joshua Tree Music Festival. (next one is October 6-9th!)

​Please email me at if you would like to book a call with me to discuss your needs, or if you have any questions.

If you'd like to receive monthly updates and news about my exclusive offerings, please make use of the contact form. Thanks, and I look forward to being in touch!
