Women's Retreat: An Exploration of Pepperwood through Art, Stargazing, Yoga, and Shin-Rin Yoku
At this 2-day retreat, you will explore the landscapes of Pepperwood through a wealth of activities at our beautiful hill top facility, the Dwight Center, and at our Bechtel House retreat cabin. The weekend starts Saturday afternoon when you'll embark on a guided hike with Shin-Rin Yoku (forest bathing) expert Karen Sapper and Pepperwood educator and wildlife biologist Margaret Boeger.
You'll spend the late afternoon immersed in a nature art activity with local educator and artist Kaesa Enemark. The day concludes with a catered dinner, followed by an astronomy lecture and guided stargazing with California Academy of Sciences Astronomer, Bing Quock.
You'll start Sunday with a yoga class overlooking the gorgeous surrounding hillsides, followed by a catered brunch. The retreat concludes at 1pm. Much of the weekend's activities will be held in the field and will include hiking 1-3 miles at a slow pace. Bring a tent to sleep under the stars or sleep in the Bechtel House. Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch are included.
