Summer Solstice Retreat 2019


  • Shambhala Ranch 21200 Orr Springs Road Ukiah, CA, 95482 United States (map)

A Solstice retreat was held in 2017 and in 2018 and we recognized the power of a group of serious yogis and teachers coming together for deep practice, quiet and sangha.  This year we are housed again at Shambhala Ranch, in a beautiful part of Mendo County, and will enjoy simple nourishing food and glorious surrounds.   Such a precious gift to ourselves right now!   Partial registrations are not possible for this retreat as we wish to enhance the quiet and continuity for all participants.
Please note: This is not a beginners retreat.      

Shambhala Ranch is on the Orr Springs Road, halfway between Ukiah and the coast, 15 minutes from Orr Hot Springs and 10 minutes from the beautiful Montgomery Redwood Grove.  There is a large pond and hot tub, and when the retreat is small which ours will be (15 - 18), good accommodation.  

Dates:  Arrival Sunday 5pm 23rd June, Departure after brunch at 10am on Friday June 28th
