Join us for a weekend of peace and natural beauty. The retreat will take place in San Marcos/Escondido on a 640 acre sacred space.
Get nourished with revitalizing yoga, invigorating hikes/walks, illuminating breathwork, deep meditation and healthy vegetarian meals. There are lots of hiking trails, labyrinth walks, shaded oaks, sanctuaries, private meditation spots and wildlife. There is plenty of space for you to find spiritual reconnection, solitude and silence.

Donation to Instructor: The registration fee covers facility, food and administrative costs only. In keeping with a Buddhist tradition, known as “dana” (generosity) as well as the retreat facility's mission, instruction given at the retreat is given freely because it is considered priceless and timeless. It is given from the heart. No amount is suggested, and all donations are anonymous. Donations can be made at the end of the retreat. (This retreat will be lead/facilitated by Tam Nguyen.)

Noble Silence: While on retreat, participants are asked to practice silence (no talking) during designated times. This traditional practice is meant to initiate your inner journey and to help you focus on your mindfulness practice. Even when you are not fully immersed in the Noble Silence, continue to observe gentle silence and be mindful of others who are.
