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

with Karen Macklin
February 5, 2022 (Saturday)


I’m thrilled to be hosting my annual retreat again at Green Gulch Zen Center. We will be in the beautiful yurt, with the wood-stove. I hope you can join!

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 2022. 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 December 9: $135*
After December 9: $160

* Price includes vegetarian lunch from Green Gulch’s magic farm! 

Because of the times we are in, I am hoping to get an idea about interest within the next month to make sure we can run the retreat. This is why I’ve moved the early bird date up to Dec. 9! To secure your spot on the retreat, please email me at for registration purposes, and send in your payment. Payments can be made most easily through Venmo (@Karen-Macklin). Contact me if you need to use a different form of payment.

Please note: If the retreat is cancelled for any reason due to COVID, you will be fully refunded.
