Quiet Spaces: A Winter Retreat
With Gloria Baraquio, Kimberly Millard and Heldine Aguiluz
December 10 - 12, 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.
As the season turns to more darkness and cold, our bodies naturally long to retreat inward. December is a time to reflect on what has transpired in the year and process all of the emotions and experiences of 2021. This retreat is designed for you to get quiet, to sit by the fire, drink some tea, let the mind settle, and just lay down. Let yourself be silent and enjoy the gifts of stillness.
This program includes:
- restorative yoga classes
- sitting meditation
- silent movement
- nature walk
- fireside mantras
- journal time
Classes are for all levels, both beginners and seasoned practitioners. We invite you to slow down with us.
