Join me for a half-day mindfulness retreat -- a healing pause from the hustle and bustle of our busy and complicated lives.
We'll practice sitting and walking meditation, engage in a mandala-creation practice, chant and sing together, and enjoy a vegan meal in community.
For portions of the day, we will be practicing in silence, and there will also be opportunities for sharing and discussion.
I'll provide a simple vegan lunch. If you are so moved, please feel free to bring a vegan side dish to share.

On this half-day New Year's retreat (on the New Moon!) for women-identified folks, we'll deepen into the silence and connect with our wise and knowing selves through meditation and creative practices.
Activities include sitting and moving meditation, chant and song, and a mandala-creation intention-setting ritual. For portions of the day, we will be practicing in silence, and there will also be opportunities for sharing and discussion. We'll conclude by sharing a delicious vegan meal in community.
The retreat runs from 9am-2pm, and is offered on a sliding scale, $40-$120. It will take place in my home in the Outer Sunset, SF. You'll receive the address in the welcome email after registering.
I'll provide a simple vegan lunch. If you are so moved, please feel free to bring a vegan side dish to share (vegan = plant-based; i.e., no meat, eggs, dairy). Thank you for your kindness!
