Grounding 2014: A Restorative Retreat
September 25-28, 2014 at Salamander in the Los Gatos Mountains
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
- Mary Oliver
In autumn we draw toward the hearth and turn inward. This year's autumn retreat will return to Salamander, the sweet little camp beloved by many members of our sangha. Salamander is an intimate retreat site where Kristie can lavish you with personal attention; at most there will be 14 retreatants. Come, let the soft animal of your body love what it loves: sweet rest, warm water, good food, song, and fine company.
Grounding convenes September 25-28. The retreat cost includes all classes, meals, and accomodations. If you have questions about the retreat in general or health concerns in regard to yoga, feel free to email Kristie, or call 415 863 1821.

Why and How We Practice
Once a psychiatrist asked Suzuki Roshi about consciousness.
"I know nothing about it," Suzuki said. "I just try to teach my students how to hear the birds sing."
