Women & Region PCD Women’s Retreat – March 8-11

The annual Women and Religion PCD Women’s Retreat is coming up on March 8-11, 2018.  All self-identified women are welcome to join us for a calming respite from our busy lives.  Usually held at a retreat center near Napa that was severely damaged in October by the wildfires, this year we will be meeting at the Anubhuti Center in Novato.  We were very lucky to find a place that could accommodate a group of our size and our preferred dates at a reasonable price.  Anubhuti is a contemplative retreat center run by Brahma Kumaris, the largest spiritual organization in the world led by women.  It is housed in a group of historic buildings that were fully renovated by the sisters 7 years ago, and sits on top of a hill, surrounded by 1,600 acres of protected open space, water and a wildlife preserve, with spectacular views of the Bay, Pacheco Pond, Novato creek and the rolling hills of Marin County.  Anubhuti usually holds meditation retreats at the center, but once a month rents the space to outside groups. Our retreat offers something for everyone: delicious meals; workshops for mind, body, and spirit; conversations with new and old friends; time for quiet contemplation; and a boutique, silent auction, and book swap.  To learn more about Women and Religion and our retreat, visit our website at http://womenandreligionpcd. org.
