New Year's Silent Yoga & Meditation Retreat
December 29, 2023 - January 1, 2024
Bell Valley Retreat
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.
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 Monique and Sheana for a 4 day (3 night) Silent Yoga and Meditation Retreat at the tranquil and chic Bell Valley Retreat located in the hills above Anderson Valley (just 2.5 hours north of San Francisco). This 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. Each element of Bell Valley Retreat promotes harmony and integration with the land - designed to honor the natural landscape originally settled by Native Pomo tribes.
