Discovering Grace

Silent Retreat in Monterey Bay, California

Asilomar Conference Grounds

October 13-19, 2024


About the Retreat

Do you feel the desire to slow down, pause and reconnect to something other than your day to day responsibilities? Join me and Brent BecVar on this week long retreat to disconnect from your roles and responsibilities and reconnect to grace.

We often say that silence is the real teacher since it is the ever present witness of your thoughts, experiences and emotions that isn’t always heard. On this immersive retreat, the conditions will be created for you to remove the distractions and listen to the wisdom of your true Self.

 Brent and I have co-facilitated the annual Chopra silent retreat, Silent Awakenings for 10 years and are excited to be continuing facilitating silent retreats on the beautiful grounds of Asilomar.

Space is limited to 30 yogis.

You will receive your Primordial Sound Meditation Mantra based on your time, date and place of birth.

60 hours of this retreat will contribute towards my 300hr Advanced Yoga Leadership Teacher Training or Continued Education Credits with 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.

Asilomar 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, Adyashanti and many more. It's rustic. There are no phones or TV's but there is wifi.

Being right on the Pacific ocean amidst the sand dunes, wood burning fireplaces and deer roaming around also supports the journey inward.
