Step into the Magic of Ratna Ling

Retreats to Revitalize Mind and Body.

Ratna Ling Retreat Center is guided by the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, but we are open to people of all faiths who are looking to find inner strength and spiritual peace. We are located in the towering redwoods of coastal Sonoma County, a spectacular 90 mile drive north of San Francisco. Our retreats offer you the opportunity to escape into a quiet, naturally sacred space, in elegant private cottages, each with an expansive view of the surrounding countryside, complete with deer, wild turkeys, rabbits and quail.


Grounded in the Tibetan Buddhist Wisdom Tradition, but open to all.

A Weekend of Self Care – MLK Day

With Gloria Baraquio, Rosalyn White and Christine DeCristofaro

January 17 - 20, 2020
Our 3 night signature program.... In the fast-paced world of mobile devices, cars, planes, deadlines, and capitalism, we can lose track of what's important, like our well-being, inner peace, laughter, and our personal truth. You matter, and you are more than enough. That phone call or email can wait. Your family or job will be fine without you always being there. Treat yourself and take three days at Ratna Ling to unwind, reflect, and breathe…

Yoga for Meditation

With Gloria Baraquio and Rosalyn White

January 24 - 26, 2020
While many of us approach yoga as a physical exercise that can improve our health and strength, we don’t always get the chance to reap the benefits of yoga as a form and means to meditation. If you want to deepen your yoga practice, study the mind, and inquire more into the Self, this retreat is for you.

Awakening the Senses

With Kamali Minter and Heldine Aguiluz

February 7 - 9, 2020
Are you ready to feel more alive and more present in your life? We practice awakening the senses to be with life exactly as it is and celebrate the spectrum of human experience instead of shunning or ignoring certain parts of ourselves and our lives. This retreat is designed to give you tools that will attract more joy, love, gratitude, acceptance, and awareness into your life.

“A beautiful and serene retreat center. The setting is breath-taking. The food is delicious and the accommodations are clean, comfortable and exquisitely designed. A wonderful getaway to truly relax and escape from it all.”
