Workshops & Retreats
Summer Sanctuary Yoga & Meditation Retreat at Sandstone Ranch: I began Katharine Kaufman’s all day yoga and meditation retreat with a heavy heart and a very busy mind… Katharine’s yoga directives held me steady to stay in the depths of loss, to move through it slowly, witnessing, observing, silently allowing the sadness to do what it needed to do within my body. By the end of the retreat, I was literally astounded by the shift within me toward a space of peaceful balance in body and spirit. I learned that yoga and meditation are tools for fully witnessing sadness, grief, anger, joy, etc., when they arise. Katharine’s steady voice, her quick observations and gentle humor allow her students to reach new levels of contemplative yoga and meditation practice. I feel so grateful to have taken this day with Katharine Kaufman and look forward to future retreats with her. Highly recommended!Amelia María de la Luz Montes, PhD

Waking without Words
Precious Knowing: A Meditation and Yoga Retreat for Women .
Shambhala Mountain Center
January 16–20, 2019
Our bodies hold emotions, images, patterns and stories. When we learn to fully inhabit our bodies through mindfulness practices, we can know ourselves as complete and wakeful beings. During this retreat, we will practice sitting meditation, flowing and restorative yoga, playful improvisational movement, and a little writing. We will deepen our practice and insight through periods of silence; and our community will develop understanding and trust through discussion and dialogue.
Previous yoga or meditation experience recommended but not required.
