Join Sonya and friends as we gather again at Ratna Ling Retreat Center. Spend a summer weekend immersed in deeply restorative and soul nourishing practices. Unplug and enjoy being in nature.
Get practical tools for stress management and release of negative patterns. Learn safe and effective yoga postures, breath work, meditation techniques, journaling exercises, and practice mindfulness in action on the hiking trails. All this set in a gorgeous coastal redwood setting, surrounded by a like-hearted and supportive community.
Leave feeling profoundly revitalized and empowered with the tools and knowledge you need to live radiantly!
Weekend will also include meditation instruction in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition from Ratna Ling resident instructor Annette Anderson.
“Meditation allows us to contact our pure nature directly, and discover the awakened quality that is always there, at every moment of our lives.”
–Tarthang Tulku, Hidden Mind of Freedom
