Free Mind, Free Heart: A Pre-Solstice Retreat in Sonoma

labyrinthYoga + Meditation + Reflection
with Karen Macklin
June 10 (evening) – June 12 (afternoon)
Westerbeke Ranch, Sonoma, CA

(Early Bird Pricing until April 1!)

As summer approaches, the added light and warmth makes it easier to liberate ourselves of the material and emotional attachments that are no longer serving us.
Join me for this special weekend retreat up in beautiful Sonoma, in which we’ll immerse ourselves in contemplative practices, nature, and ritual to let go of the past and cultivate a deeper sense of lightness and freedom in the body, mind, and heart.

This retreat includes:pool

* daily yoga practices exploring the concepts of freedom and release (all levels welcome)
* meditation practices, writing exercises, and dharma talks aimed at cultivating non-attachment (vairagya) and opening to possibility
* delicious organic vegetarian food
* hot-tubbing and swimming, and use of a beautiful labyrinth
* a ritual ceremony devoted to letting go of that which we no longer need
