Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code ES4D18.

The winter solstice invites reflection. As the longest night of the year approaches, the call for us is to go inward and reflect on the past year.

What is there to celebrate? What changes need witnessing and attention? What are we ready to let go of? What are we calling forth in the coming year?

This day retreat will offer a meditative space for inquiry on the beautiful land at Spirit Rock, weaving together silent meditation, dharma reflections, relational mindfulness, and song. We will have a fire ceremony to call forth the light.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
