About This Event

JOIN US FOR A 3-NIGHT PROGRAM THIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WITH GLORIA BARAQUIO IS DESIGNED FOR YOU TO REMIND YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN SLOW DOWN AND TAKE A BREAK

In the fast-paced world of mobile devices, cars, planes, deadlines, and capitalism, we can lose track of what’s important, like our well-being, inner peace, laughter, and our personal truth.

You matter, and you are more than enough. That phone call or email can wait. Your family or job will be fine without you always being there.

Treat yourself and take three days at Ratna Ling to unwind, reflect, and breathe into your fullness. Remember what you value the most, and then return to your life with a renewed sense of ease, joy, and strength.

This weekend includes:

Yoga for all levels with Gloria Baraquio

Sound Baths

Meditation for all levels

Essential Oils Class

Sacred Art

Bodywork, acupuncture, and massage at the Mandala Wellness Center (at an additional cost)

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

YOGA

These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements.  The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, and stronger from this yoga practice.

SOUND BATHS

Enjoy and relax to the sounds of harmonizing bowls, chimes, and serene musical instruments.  Allow the mind and body to soften, as your spirit travels to restful and ethereal realms.  Participants will lay down for most of the practice, and/or be guided through restorative postures with supportive props.

MEDITATION 

In these sessions, you can learn how to be with yourself and make friends with your mind, through sitting or walking.. The mind has a multitude of qualities and abilities, and meditation helps us observe and acquaint ourselves with the ones that occur often and those that we didn’t know were there.  This practice can bring about more steadiness, clarity, discernment, and calmness for the mind, body, and spirit.

ESSENTIAL OILS BASICS

Learn how to be a healer in your own home and bring daily self-care with essential oils.  We will sample different essential oils and learn about the natural healing qualities of each that can boost your immunity, calm the mind, soothe muscles, or activate alertness.

SACRED ART

Find inspiration and enchantment through the study of Buddhist drawings, paintings, and sculptures, and learn a little history and symbolism behind them.

 

“A beautiful and serene retreat center. The setting is breath-taking. The food is delicious and the accommodations are clean, comfortable and exquisitely designed. A wonderful getaway to truly relax and escape from it all.” – Beth Berlin-Stephens, a Google review

San Francisco International and Oakland International airports are approximately three hours south of Ratna Ling by car. Alaska Airlines flies to and from Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa which is approximately 1.5 hours from Ratna Ling by car. Unfortunately, there are no shuttles that bring you directly to Ratna Ling, so it is best to rent a car or email us to support in coordinating a carpool with fellow retreatants.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
