Wellness Program

An Experience of Mindfulness with Elizabeth Gosselin

February 23rd & 24th

 

Each retreat begins on Friday evening and ends on Saturday evening

The Ranch Retreat is for anyone interested in exploring mindfulness and insight meditation.  We invite you to take time out from your daily routine to explore this unique opportunity to assist you in cultivating a calm and quiet mind, to rest the body and to rejuvenate and to explore more spaciousness in everyday life. 

The retreat will focus on silent meditation using experiential practices including mindful movement, sitting and walking meditation, and guided meditations. 

The practices we will be exploring are based on Eastern philosophies that will teach and assist someone new to mindfulness, while providing inspiration to deepen one’s existing practice.  Each day there will be progressive instruction in mindfulness practices and an interactive discussion from the teachings.  All are welcome – from beginners to seasoned practitioners.  All sessions will be in silence except during the discussion periods.

Cost:  $299 per participant.  This includes the program and special spa menu meals on Friday for dinner, all meals on Saturday, all tax and gratuity and 20% off Spa Treatments.  The Ranch is offering all participants a special room rate of $250 per night for a standard canyon room. 

To register contact Madison Powers, Reservations Manager at Madison@ranchlb.com or call (949) 715-1381. 

Private meditation consultations are also available.  Email Elizabeth at ElizabethGosselin@mac.com.
