Welcome to the Weekend Retreat!
I’m so glad that you have decided to join us.
Friday, August 23
We will begin the Weekend Retreat at Padma's new home. The address is 43 Power Lane, Fairfax, CA 94930. Here is a link for your convenience.
Parking can be a tad tricky and depending on the size of the group, I may run a shuttle. I will keep you posted as we get closer.
Please arrive by 6:45pm and we will begin at 7pm. Tea and light snacks will be provided. Friday’s meeting will be from 7-9p.
Saturday, August 24
We will meet at Paradise Healing Center at 10am. It will be a wonderfully restful and rejuvenating weekend. Paradise itself is stunningly lovely and very peaceful. It's a gift to spend time there.
Thank you so much for arriving on time as every moment there is precious.
We will be there for the entire day, yay! 10a-5p
Things to Bring to Paradise:
Sunhat, sunscreen, shades, flip flops, loose sundress or wrap and a towel (bathing suits are optional)
The upper area of the property is clothing optional and we have the whole place to ourselves. Jill will be there to host us so we often swim, hot tub and sauna in the nude. Please feel welcome to wear a bathing suit if this is more comfortable for you
A pair of sneakers if you would like to hike (optional)
A journal and pen and perhaps a book to read
Things NOT to bring:
Computers or iPads. Let’s be screen free for a day if possible (How about we use our phones are for emergency communications only?)
Alcohol -- this is a sober event. It’s so luscious in Paradise that nothing else is needed.
Directions to Paradise:
Paradise is just 10 minutes or so west of Fairfax.
Best to use these directions as Google Maps will be confusing:
Travel west on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. into the San Geronimo Valley
Exactly 2 miles from the entrance to the SGV Golf Course, take a RIGHT on ARROYO.
Travel 6/10 of a mile and take a LEFT on ARROYO. You will see 2 big yellow signs. One of them says, “NO OUTLET.” Turn here.
Cross a little bridge (it’s barely a bridge). Drive just a little ways and you are very close.
Paradise is the 3rd drive on the LEFT, marked with 9 Alamo Way and a golden yellow sarong/flag. The gate will be open. (The 2nd drive is Allstar Organics and their gate will be closed.)
Drive on up and park under the Palm Tree.
Feel free to call Jill at Paradise Healing Center at (415) 488-1421 should you feel lost.
Please also call me at 415-215-2849 if you have any questions or are running late. You don't want to miss a moment though.
Sunday, August 25
Meet at The Open Floor in Sausalito which is held at The Martin Luther King Gymnasium located at 100 Coloma Street Sausalito, CA 94965. Google will get you there with ease. I will meet you there at 10:45am. The dance is from 11a-1p. Please wear comfortable clothing for movement.
After the dance, we will share a picnic meal and have our closing circle. The group will conclude at 3pm so that you can drive home or catch your flight out.
I will leave travel and accommodation to you. Please reach out if you would like help.
Please note that the event includes tea and light snacks on Friday, snacks and lunch on Saturday while we are in Paradise and Open Floor entry and lunch on Sunday.
If you have any questions about the event, please feel welcome to call Padma at 415-215-2849. Feel free to invite any women friends, sisters, mothers and girls ages 16 and up. Thank you for spreading the word!
I look forward to being with you in Paradise soon.
