Global Village In-Person Retreat

Thursday, October 20 Sunday, October 23 PDT

 

Yael Melamed and Swami Sivasankariananda have facilitated five Global Village grief support groups to date. This retreat, onsite at the peaceful Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Los Angeles, is meant as a follow-up to the online group experience. Take the opportunity to mingle with fellow Global Village alumni. We continue the inner work, group work, mutual sharing and yoga practices to support personal healing. Enjoy one-on-one sharing. Let go even more deeply.
