Fall Retreat at Santa Sabina

Please join us this Fall for Jon’s 4-Day Silent Retreat in San Rafael!

Thursday, November 2nd – 5th, 2017
Santa Sabina Retreat Center
San Rafael, California

Retreat creates a space to deepen into the stillness of being. It is a container for the silence which permeates 4 days of moving profoundly and gently within. There are periods of meditation, talks by Jon and an opportunity to dialogue with him one-on-one. You will also have ample free time to be in nature, take walks and rest. It is a gathering of about 60 people, many of whom return often to experience the power of awakening of the heart.

Santa Sabina is an enchanting retreat center that was once a monastery. There are beautiful gardens, a contemplative courtyard and chapel, and delicious healthy cuisine. Jon is usually on-site the entire retreat and is present throughout each day for many periods of silent sitting and satsang and often has meals with the group as well.

The retreat begins at check-in at 5pm on Thursday and ends on Sunday at about 1pm. We ask that you commit to on-site attendance for the entire retreat.

Pre-registration is required. Please email us at clearwatersangha@gmail.com to confirm there is a space available and to receive details.

Room and Board cost: $476 (double room)

Once we confirm there is space available, please make checks out to “Clear Water Sangha” and mail it to:

If you are traveling from outside the area, you can take the Marin Airporter shuttle bus from San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The retreat center is a short taxi cab ride from the drop-off spot in San Rafael.

We are vastness itself. Freedom is the realization that we are that. ~Jon
