Hosted at the beautiful Mt Madonna Center on 355 acres of peaceful mountain-top redwood forest and grassland. Located between Santa Cruz and Monterey, just 20 minutes from Silicon Valley. Mt Madonna features a spectacular view of all Monterrey Bay.

The weekend will consist of Feldenkrais lessons, yoga, laughter, connection, meditation, movement classes, nature, as well as personal and spiritual growth classes.  All classes are optional.  You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax around the retreat center’s natural settings, spend time journaling, hot tubbing or sipping on a cup of tea.

**For a sample schedule from last year, please scroll to the bottom of the page of my website.

The amazing mountain accommodations range from plush to rustic, and hiking, local vegetarian cuisine, and a whole lot more are on offer.

Prices vary from 500-900 depending on accommodations.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound Healing is improvised, non-periodic, harmonic, and tonal sound created with the intention of restoring flow and clearing congested energy from the body allowing for the nervous system’s natural self-healing process to take place. One can expect to feel physical, emotional, and spiritual shifts occur in an atmosphere of tranquility and meditation.

When we combine Sound Healing and Feldenkrais, some of the results one can expect to feel include:

  • Freeing your body from stiffness, aches and pain.
  • Improved skeletal alignment, flexibility & physical mobility.
  • Improved athletic performance.
  • Decreased anxiety, stress and sleep issues.
  • Improved, strength, agility, and comfort.
  • Improved intuition.

Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure.

We welcome all levels of experience.

Hear what are last years participants saying:

“My experience on Mt. Madonna, with our group, was pivotal for me … I am now engaging regularly in yoga, have more clarity of thought … & I am staying in my truth, not so concerned about what others think. Thank you for what you do … you are a Gift.” (Bob Lynch, 2019)

“Since this retreat, I can proactively manage any back, neck or shoulder pain before it becomes chronic.  Shara’s natural and intuitive style pinpoints how to refine your body’s movements and awareness to enable healthier pain-free living.”    (Dan, Mtn View, Financial Mgr).

“Wow. My right shoulder has never been so relaxed and lowered.  That hand Feldenkrais lesson was amazing.  Feldenkrais is amazing.”  (Rebecca from Switzerland, Science Research Student).
