Opening to Wisdom

Yoga + Meditation + Reflection

We spend a lot of time chasing the dream of an elusive “happy life” that’s dependent on external circumstances. But as we deepen into the investigation of reality, we can take on a more skillful orientation: wisdom. A wise life is available to each one of us, regardless of circumstance, and it opens us to the possibility of deeper connection, purpose, and freedom.

Join me for this special daylong retreat up at the beautiful Green Gulch Zen Center, in which we’ll immerse ourselves in nature and contemplative practices (yoga, meditation, & discussion), and learn how to live a wise, expansive life.

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.

Pricing (Early-bird!)
On or before Sep 5: $135
After Sep 5 : $155

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