Anubhuti Meditation and Retreat Center, 820 Bel Marin Keys Blvd, Novato

Day Retreat

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The journey to seeing the beauty and benefit in everyone and everything is the journey of self-empowerment.

When we are disempowered we become ‘victims’ of circumstances, situations and people. As we see ourselves more clearly we start to value ourselves and others more. This empowers us to make choices that are right for us, choices that naturally become ones of benefit, not just for ourselves, but for others also.

The purpose of this retreat:

  • Learn how to end all blame and embrace the opportunity to change.
  • Create an inner culture of continuous learning
  • Affirm your purpose and exercise your creative capacity
  • Understand how to work with others and be productive
