Gold Country Mini-Retreat

May 16, 2020 - CANCELED

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.

Owing to California's "shelter in place" policy during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Gold Country Mini-Retreat has been canceled.

The 2020 Gold Country Mini-Retreat has been canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
