Power of Nature Retreat – Ratna Ling with Melina Meza and Baxter Bell

June 11-13, 2021

One of places that so many of our students have told us was their safe haven over the past year has been time spent in Nature. Melina and Baxter can attest to the power of nature to connect us with our authentic selves, especially at places like Ratna Ling Retreat Center. Our weekend together will be an opportunity to take advantage of the natural environment to help us rest, restore and recharge after the long Pandemic year. At Ratna Ling, enjoy your own bedroom in a gorgeous 2-bedroom cottage, wholesome vegetarian meals, beautiful retreat grounds, and an environment that fosters an appreciation for the boundless potential within each of us.

Located just 90 miles north of San Francisco in the redwood forests of Sonoma County, this is a great getaway for Bay Area folks as well as those coming from farther afield!

Whats our plan is for the weekend?
Our weekend will include daily socially distanced outdoor yoga (weather permitting) and meditation sessions, a Saturday afternoon hike (or drive) to the beach or enjoy some R & R in your gorgeous cottage or wandering the retreat grounds, and an evening community gathering in a redwood circle.
