See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The redwood forest setting, organic vegetarian meals, serene temples and prayer wheels of the alcohol- and smoke-free Land of Medicine Buddha set the tone for an educational getaway designed to achieve harmony of body, mind and spirit. Learn to harness the restorative power of Buddhist meditation, explore ancient secrets for wellbeing found in herbs and aromatherapy, and acquire the basics of yoga and Qi Gong so you can practice them at home. During unscheduled time, take advantage of retreat amenities including nature trails, a collection of Tibetan art, a sauna and more.



Highlights

• Relax into the true open nature of your mind as you discover various meditation techniques — enhanced by lecture and discussion — that anyone in any lifestyle can practice.
• Identify and learn to use healing plants that can boost your immune system, alleviate pain, enhance relaxation and sleep, build stronger bones, stimulate digestion and improve memory.
• Stretch, relax and strengthen with gentle yogic movements, and enhance your life-force energy through the ancient Chinese art of movement, awareness and breathing known as Qi Gong.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Short walking distances between accommodation, meeting rooms and dining room. Hilly terrain, uneven ground in places, some stairs to dining room.
