Self Care & Santosha Retreat
Mar 2 @ 4:00 pm – Mar 4 @ 2:00 pm

Welcome to the 4th Annual Santosha retreat! Letting Go and Contentment are the topics to be explored in this year’s event. What can you expect this year? This year we are going to investigate lightening our load. What old stories do we hold on to? What illusions impact our thinking? How can we uncouple those box cars filled with old ideas and give more energy to our train?

Morning meditations, daily yoga practices, discourse and discussion, hiking, singing, and art are included in the investigation of discovering what may be holding you back from experiencing contentment and giving you a path to letting go.

These annual retreats are designed to help us discover new aspects of contentment, how to get there and to practice modes of self care through yoga, breath work and meditation. Another critical component of self-care is the beautiful surroundings, wonderful companionship and delicious food offered by the Land of Medicine Buddha center.

 

Enjoy the benefits of Yoga and the healing powers of the Land of Medicine Buddha center.

Three yoga classes, group discussions and exploration will be balanced with time to hike, rest and to schedule a massage. (Massages are arranged directly with LMB- Please call 831-462-8383 to schedule in advance.)

 

Eat delicious healthy meals enjoyed in community.

 

Enjoy Kirtan, the music of devotion, Saturday afternoon.

Bring your yoga mat, a blanket and a pillow/ bolster for your practice.
