Gold Country Mini-Retreat

Spring 2022

Since 2010 we've held annual Gold Country mini-retreats in beautiful Auburn, CA, nestled in the Sierra foothills. Like our mini-retreats in San Francisco and Calistoga, this is a one-day event that combines discussion of a book (usually nonfiction) with a screening of a related film. There is a small charge, and lunch is provided.

Please join us in Spring 2022 for the next Gold Country Mini-Retreat.
