All Day

The wilderness offers us a space to be present with what is happening in our moment-to-moment experience, free from the constant distraction of our technological world. The presence and awareness that is fostered supports a deeper connection with ourselves, each other, and the natural world.  On this retreat we will explore mindfulness through silent periods of meditation practice, relational activities, and daily exploration of nature within us and outside of us. The emerging science of mindfulness suggests that mindfulness can help build emotional resilience, inner strength, and well being. Retreat practice helps us develop the flexibility to be present, kind, and skillful whether we are alone or interacting with others.  Please come prepared to participate with curiosity and a willingness to engage with challenge. This retreat is for any adult interested in an immersive wilderness mindfulness retreat – prior meditation experience is not necessary.  Please note, that this is a backpacking retreat and participants will need to be able to carry their own gear over varied terrain for multiple miles. We will meet at 10am on April 15th at the trail head and will hike into the wilderness from there, returning to our cars on April 22nd by mid-afternoon. The entire retreat will take place out of doors in the wilderness. Each day will include formal sitting and walking meditation with instruction, nature awareness and relational mindfulness practices. Mindful hiking will be a regular element of each day. Participants should feel comfortable carrying a 35-45 lb pack for 2-4 miles each day.

There are just a few options for lodging close to the trailhead. Gorda Springs Resort (805) 927-3918 is the closest option north of our trailhead and offers a variety of options. Treebones Resort (805) 927-2390 is also relatively close and offers camping and yurts - they usually have a 2-night minimum so this would be a good option if you want to have an extra day in the Big Sur area before the retreat. Ragged Point Inn (805) 927-4502 is just 9 miles to the South of Salmon Creek Station and is the closest option, although the furthest away from points north. There are also a number of campsites along Highway 1: Plaskett Creek Campground (805) 434-1996, and Limekiln State Park (831) 667-2403 are closest to our trailhead. Reservations recommended. More options are readily available north on Highway 1 and in Monterey. It is about a 2 hour drive from Monterey to our meeting spot at Salmon Creek Station.
wifi - Email/FB only (weak signal)
All of our meals will accommodate vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of the retreat. If you have a particular dietary need that does not fall under one of the above categories we will do our best to support you but it may be necessary for you to supply some of your own food.
