A Retreat with Sound and Silence, Movement and Stillness, Introspection and Self-Expression with Denise Barclay at Camp Galilee!

November 2, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - November 5, 2023 @ 11:30 am

We are excited to be offering for the first time a 3 night retreat!  With all the time it takes to quiet and settle the whole system this extra day will create the space for deeper insights and reflections.

Dhamma is all things all the time so on this retreat while engaging in gentle yoga and QiGong practices, walking and sitting meditations, sound meditation, an art project and immersion into sound with conscious movement we will be weaving the thread of mindfulness and noticing our attitudes in relationship to all of them. All while relaxing in the beauty of Lake Tahoe and savoring the nutritious and delicious meals offered  at Camp Galilee. All levels of Yoga/Meditation practitioners are welcome.

The retreat will be an in-person retreat.  Prerequisite for this retreat is a negative Covid 19 test at the beginning of the retreat.  You may test yourself within 48 hours before arrival. If you can not provide your own test kit we will make one available to you.

Arrival/Departure: Arrive on Thursday no later then 4:30 pm and the retreat will finish on Sunday around 11:30am.

Cost: $375 There is a limit of 24 spaces.  All room and board goes directly to Camp Galilee.  A minimum $200 deposit is required to secure your spot. All single rooms have been taken, you can ask to be added to the single room waitlist. The remaining balance is due by October 2, 2023.

There will be an  opportunity to give Dana to Denise at the end of the retreat. The Teacher is supported in her work by Dana (donation) for this retreat and her livelihood is completely sustained by the generosity of the communities she serves. Dana (donation) for these priceless teachings will be gratefully accepted by the teacher and staff, giving participants the opportunity to freely engage in the practice of generosity, the first step toward freedom. Volunteering to help set up before the retreat and assist in clean up at the end are also acts of generosity.
