Our annual New Year’s retreat will be held as usual at the Vallombrosa Center located on 10 gorgeous acres in a quiet corner of Menlo Park, California. Celebrate a year of deepening practice and welcome the beginning of another year with Sangha from all over the world. This retreat features meditation, group discussions, yoga, guidance with Cheri, delicious vegetarian food, free time to spend in nature on the center’s spacious grounds and a community of people gathered to practice conscious compassionate awareness. It is an extraordinary way to begin the New Year. We invite you to give yourself this retreat as a special holiday gift.
