CALIFORNIA RETREAT AT MONTEREY BAY

July 10-17, 2022

I regularly ask myself prior to meditation "What is my dharma and how do I want to serve?" It was during one of these meditations where this retreat came to mind. I wanted to create a space for yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners to practice with one another, learn from each other and create a community with the potential to make significant shifts in the world towards mindfulness and wellbeing. 

My intention is to host this retreat annually. The content will shift each year and this first one will be focused on the Purusharthas. We will explore one of the Purusharthas each day, deep diving into the philosophy and practice of dharma (purpose), artha (means in which we live our purpose), kama (the joy of community) and moksha (freedom). 

60 hours can be applied to Continued Education Credits and my 300hr Yoga Leadership Teacher Training through Yoga Alliance.

About Asilomar
derived from Spanish asilo al mar meaning refuge by the sea

Asilomar Conference Grounds is located on the Western tip of the Monterey Peninsula. It was designed and built by architect Julia Morgan between 1913-1929 and was originally a YWCA.

I have been visiting Asilomar with the Chopra Center and mindfulon for over 10 years. It is one of my favorite retreat centers because of the history, nature, walking trails, and beach. It's been the venue of so many spiritual teachers like Wayne Dyer (he filmed the Shift here), Deepak Chopra and Adyashanti. 

There are no phones or TV's but there's wifi.
