Dear Friends, 
I invite you to join me this New Years, for a special celebration and rejuvenation retreat at the beautiful Vedanta Spiritual Retreat Center, in California Hot Springs. The retreat center, where we host some of our training programs is in nestled in the foothills of the Sequoias on 240 acres of land, near 2,000 giant sequoias and thermal hot springs. We are excited to host our 8th New Year’s retreat. This will be a time of going inwards, being in community and diving deep into the practices of yoga, chanting and meditation that strengthen body, mind and soul.
Our New Year’s retreats offer a powerful time of reflection, healing, connection, rejuvenation and celebration.

Daily yoga, meditation, chanting, hiking, delicious food, community and time in nature will make this a time of recharging and healing weekend. Focusing on the themes of reflection (what we learned in 2019), letting go (of what we need to), activation (getting body, mind +Soul in alignment) for purpose (dharma) and creating positive energy into the new year ahead. It is powerful medicine to take some time for yourself in the support of spiritual practice and community, as we move into the fullness of another year.

Resilience + Healing with the 5 Elements 
We will focus on rejuvenation and healing through all the elements; earth, water, fire, air + ether. We are near to a wonderful hot springs resort, where we visit for 1/2 price, where we will have soaking time everyday. We will also have sacred fires, time on the land and a cacao ceremony as well as daily yoga, music and chanting. The retreat is alcohol-free and will be a sacred celebration of life.
