Gold Country Mini-Retreat

Spring 2023

Auburn, CA

Since 2010 we've held annual Gold Country mini-retreats in beautiful Auburn, CA, nestled in the Sierra foothills. Like our other mini-retreats, 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.

For further information and to register for the event, please check back on this site in early 2023.
