Winter Solstice Retreat

NEW! Winter Solstice Retreat! Dec, 20th-23rd

Stepping into winter Solstice, the time of stillness and hibernation, we are creating our own ‘Holy Days’ by slowing down in this beautiful winter retreat. It is our longing to relax together into the nourishing Stillness.

Each day will have periods of moving meditation, sitting meditation, dharma talks,
Qi Gong and sacred sexuality talks and more. How does life move through us in this beautiful dance of aliveness? How can we ignite and meet our true, Buddha nature?

On Friday there will be a silent Tea ceremony with Frederick Ballario. He has just returned from Thailand deepening his teachings with tea. I (Lindy) have experienced the ceremony twice with Frederick and I love the stillness and the mastery that he brings to create a magical awareness in the body mind and spirit. The tea is often mild, but those of you that are completely caffeine free might sit and watch instead of participating. There is a maximum number for this ceremony of 15.

Qi gong, led by Rachel Van Dessel, opens and clears the energies in our body and connect us with our sensual nature.  Rachel is a delightful, playful and beautifully awake Qi gong teacher and Buddhist. There’s clarity in her teaching that makes the movement very easy to follow.
There will be the option of some overnights at the house and possibly five minutes away at a friend’s house and if you prefer a hotel there is a Best Western/Seacliff Inn in Aptos only eight minutes away.

It is so lovely for us all to be together. The meals will be lunch and dinner potluck. You can also bring something for yourself and eat with us.  We are five minutes drive to the ocean.

Each day has three sessions. You have the option to come to an individual session, an entire day, or all three days.
