Creating Connection

A Sacred Holiday Retreat


Hood Canal, WA

December 19-22, 2019

The word Sangha refers to a community that helps you to grow spiritually. After leading retreats for many years, the thing we have found to be consistently powerful about retreat is the way that a warm and safe community can bring about healing and growth. Join me and Maria Williquette for three nights at the gorgeous St. Andrew's House conveniently located between Seattle and Portland on the southern end of the Hood Canal. The retreat includes daily morning yoga and afternoon practice that includes meditation, pranayama, and philosophy; 3 nights lodging; and all your meals. We will have group study and time in community as well as plenty of time for you to be on your own and care for you. Spend some intentional time near the holidays nourishing your soul.”

A $100 deposit holds your spot.
