New Year's Silent
Yoga & Meditation Retreat
29 December 2023-1 January 2024
To enter the unspeakable requires a quiet courage that points to what is often out of reach, though it is never far from us. By entering that silence, the unspeakable shows itself as the thread of light that holds the web of life together- Mark Nepo
Join us for a 4-day (3-night) Silent Yoga and Meditation Retreat at the tranquil and chic Whispertree Retreat located in the hills above Anderson Valley Just 2.5 hours north of San Francisco.
Entering the New Year in silence can be a profound way to renew ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Our daily practices will focus on deepening presence with ourselves and the beauty of nature around us, and reflecting on the meaning that the close of the year uniquely holds for each of us.
Tranquil & Chic Sacred Land
Bell Valley Retreat is truly a special place, as the retreat land spans more than 600 acres, with extensive trails weaving through rolling oak hills and open meadows.
