iRest Meditation Retreat: with Guest Presenter Richard Miller

February 20–23, 2020

San Rafael, CA


Within everyday life a deep longing calls us home to our essential nature, to nourish the essence that is grounded, indestructible, and unchanging. Retreat is the time to embody this homecoming and open a door to delight, wonder, and astonishment.

We invite you to join Stephanie and guest presenter Richard Miller on this special retreat. Engage in meditative inquiry and the timeless yogic teachings of body-sensing, breath-sensing, sitting, walking, and co-meditation. Practice iRest Yoga Nidra, inner and outer silence, and commune with like-minded practitioners in intimate and spirited dialogue into our essential nature. Answer this invitation to awaken to your unchanging Being.

This is a silent retreat.
