The Light Within: Green Gulch Retreat

Yoga + Meditation + Reflection
with Karen Macklin
Saturday, October 7, 2017 (10am-5:30pm)

As we approach the darker months, it’s a perfect time to turn inward. This process allows us to shift our attention from the external light of the sun to the internal light that resides inside each of us. If we turn inward with awareness, we are also able to better tend to our shadow side with greater care, acceptance, and love.

Join me for this special day-long retreat up at the beautiful Green Gulch Zen Center, in which we’ll immerse ourselves in contemplative practices, nature, and ritual to make peace with the darkness and contact the light of awareness within.  

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 Oct 1: $115 (Extended!)
After Oct 1: $135

*Price includes vegetarian lunch from Green Gulch’s magic farm! (If you prefer to bring your own lunch, I can apply a $10 discount – please let me know.) 

To secure your spot on the retreat, please email me at and then send in your payment. Payments can be made by check (email me for my address, or bring it to class) or directly through PayPal

Please note: Due to the nature of retreat center reservations, all payments are final, and there are no refunds or credits. Thanks for understanding!
