Gold Country Mini-Retreat

Spring 2025

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.

The next Gold Country Mini-Retreat will be during the spring of 2025. We'll post information on this web page about the reading and film, date, time, and location, as well as a registration link, as soon as those details are available.

In recent years, the Gold Country Mini-Retreat has featured discussions of Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann; The Brothers by Steven Kinzer; Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer; Queen of the Desert by Gertrude Bell; and The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls; along with film adaptations or related films.
