Due to the fires that devastated Santa Rosa last year, our annual spring ten-day retreat relocated to Saratoga Springs Retreat Center in Upper Lake, CA— about 15 minutes from Clear Lake, just north of the wine country. The retreat center is nestled in a narrow valley, protected from outside noise by 2 ridges with hiking trails for those who sought vast views. There was a hot pool that soaked away aches and pains, and a lovely conference room for meditation. The area had many birds and wild life. Jonathon, Jeffrey, Katrina, and Phil provided three delicious meals for our nourishment and delight. And we settled quickly into deep meditation practice together. Participant feedback was so positive that we have scheduled next year’s retreat there for May 6-16, 2019. Save these dates and enjoy deep meditation in a peaceful and beautiful northern California environment with us.
