A Weekend of Self Care | Labor Day 2021 — SOLD OUT!
September 3 - 6, 2021
For your safety and ours, we require proof of vaccination from all visitors and residents of Ratna Ling Retreat Center. We wish to provide peace of mind for all of our guests.
SLOW DOWN, TAKE A BREAK, AND REST
JOIN US FOR OUR PREMIER 3-NIGHT PROGRAM ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND. PLEASE BOOK EARLY, THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT. RESERVATIONS ARE LIMITED TO 28 GUESTS
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 into your fullness. Remember what you value the most, and then return to your life with a renewed sense of ease, joy, and strength.
This weekend includes:
- Yoga for all levels
- Sound & Music Journeys
- Meditation for all levels
- Optional massage at the Mandala Wellness Center for additional fees
- And much more….

These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements. The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, and stronger from this yoga practice.
WAYS TO SELF-CARE
Learn how to bring balance for yourself through daily self-care with essential oils, breathing, yoga, journaling, walking, enjoying tea, and deep listening. We will discuss and explore different practices that people use to care for themselves.
In these sessions, you can learn how to be with yourself and make friends with your mind, through sitting or walking.. The mind has a multitude of qualities and abilities, and meditation helps us observe and acquaint ourselves with the ones that occur often and those that we didn’t know were there. This practice can bring about more steadiness, clarity, discernment, and calmness for the mind, body, and spirit.
RESTORATIVE MOVEMENT YOGA
This yoga is designed to restore the nervous system and allow all systems in the body to come back to homeostasis. The class incorporates relaxing movement and postures on the floor, with the support of various props.
Find inspiration through learning about Buddhist deities and chanting mantras to call on higher qualities of being.
PRACTICES FOR COMPASSION & FORGIVENESS
In this session, we learn about our boundaries and how to open our hearts. Through group and partner work, we will practice how to be and speak with others, especially when we feel closed, challenged and impatient.
Enjoy and relax to the sounds of singing, chanting, and meditative music. Allow the mind and body to soften, as your spirit travels to peaceful and ethereal realms. Participants will lay down for some of the practice, and/or be guided through restorative postures with supportive props.
ART MEDITATION ON COMPASSION
Join Resident Artist Tina Rath in honoring the process of grief and all those who have died or suffered during the pandemic. Tina will be set up in an art space, asking guests to participate in drawing circles in gold ink to honor the lives of those who have passed. Learn more here: https://tinarath.com/requiem/
