About this trip

Join us for a deeply restorative weekend in the beautiful Mendocino highlands. Together we will take time to slow down, unplug, and relax. Take a break from the stress of technology, work, and politics. Immerse yourself in the tranquility of this unique and secluded space. Enjoy yoga, meditation, sound healing, and other practices. Delicious organic vegetarian meals will be served daily for your nourishment. The healing waters of Orr Hot Springs, and the majestic Redwood trees of Montgomery State Forest are nearby. Take a soak in the mineral springs and enjoy a hike through one of the most magnificent forests in California. Massage and bodywork are also available.


Zazen Retreat Center is located just two hours north of San Francisco, in the Mendocino highlands between Ukiah and the Mendocino coast. The center is nested on a ridge with 40 acres of Oak and rolling hills with expansive views in all directions.

Had such a great experience on this renewal retreat. The yoga, sound healing, meditation, hot springs, nature, delicious food and great people made for a truly fulfilling experience. I loved that there was no pressure to participate in everything that was scheduled but even if you did attend all there was still time for individual reflection and quiet space alone. Thank you so much, Sonya & Arasa!
Sonya and Arasa led a wonderful retreat, creating a magical space for participants to unfold. They had scheduled a full array of practices, including guided meditations and chanting, asana practices, relaxation and sound healing, as well as opportunities to soak in the Orr Hot Springs or hike through a magnificent redwood forrest. But all activities were optional, allowing participants to engage with as many or as few activities as they wished, with no judgement. Sonya's skillful teaching, coupled with Arasa's beautiful soundscapes, led participants through powerful and deeply transformative practices. Their passion and deep engagement with the practices and their evident pleasure at holding space for others make them warm and engaging hosts for a retreat. The location was also spectacular, perched on top of a hill and surrounded by gentle rolling hills and oak trees. The retreat center felt like a warm and welcoming home. Daveed and Jamuna, the couple running the center, served extraordinary meals, and also offered thai massage.
