“In the Heart of the Redwoods” Retreat Information


Join us for a retreat held in the midst of the redwoods on Mt. Tamalpais in Northern California.

The days will be structured to include the usual sitting and walking meditation, and there will be considerable
opportunity to utilize the natural setting and surrounding areas for individual as well as group activities. Although there will be a schedule, everyone will be encouraged to engage in it according to their personal
physical requirements. As always, the retreat will be held in silence.

The Ralston White Retreat center offers sleeping arrangements including comfortable beds and bathrooms for everyone. To view additional pictures or read more about the location go here.

Call or write the center if you want a hardcopy application mailed to you.
