Coming Home: A Yoga and Meditation Retreat for the New Year

with Karen Macklin
February 16, 2019 (Saturday)

The beginning of a new year marks a time of transition, a time in which we are given the opportunity to step more fully into–and come home to–our true selves. On this daylong retreat at the beautiful and tranquil Green Gulch Zen Center in Marin, we’ll utilize the practices of yoga, seated meditation, inner silence, writing, and svadyaya (self-study) to connect more deeply to the essence of who we really are. We’ll also eat delicious food from the organic farm, and create sankalpas (sacred intentions) aimed at staying closer to our own hearts and values in 2019. I hope you can join for this powerful day of practice and presence!


Green Gulch Zen Center is located in Marin County, just 30-45 minutes north of San Francisco, in a lovely valley that opens out onto the Pacific Ocean. There is a rich organic farm and garden on the premises, which students will have ample time to stroll through on breaks, and appreciate the profound beauty of this land. Carpooling is encouraged and those without cars will be sure to receive rides.


On or before February 1: $125
After February 1: $150

* Slight increase from last year due to an increase in the Zen Center’s 2019 rates. Price includes vegetarian lunch from Green Gulch’s magic farm!
