Week-end Retreat

  • Santa Sabina Center San Rafael, California United States (map)

The 40 Days: Alchemy of Tranquility program will be holding its annual weekend retreat Friday evening January 15th through Sunday afternoon January 17th. The retreat will be held at the beautiful and peaceful grounds of the Santa Sabina Center on the Dominican University campus in San Rafael, Ca. 

The 40 Days program is based on the ancient recognition that psychology, physiology, and spiritual experience are interrelated and interconnected dimensions of the whole self. The program is comprised of co-leaders and Sufi Masters Dr. Nahid Angha and Shah Nazar Dr. Ali Kianfar and a team of experienced psychotherapists and educators. 

Facilitators at this retreat will invite each participant to explore his or her self-experience to cultivate increased wisdom and intrapersonal balance through the various workshops and experiential presentations. The intention of the program is to offer each participant a well-developed style of personal practice for how to understand the self—this style of practice is rooted in ancient mysticism and influenced by psychology. The design of the retreat strives to have participants integrate back into their lives post-retreat with a new and profound sense of personal meaning, intention and life direction. 

The retreat will include presentations, conversations and experiential practices covering the subjects of psychology, spirituality, meditation, poetry and music, and the martial arts. This weekend is open to and helpful to one of any religious/spiritual background and is designed for one interested in a practical approach to psycho-spiritual development.
