MEN'S WEEKEND RETREAT
September 9-11, 2022 in Sonoma, California
Led by Michael Fong
Engage. Align. Connect.
Men of all ages and walks of life are invited to come together for this amazing experience. It is so common to get completely bound by routine or caught in the loop of bad habits. We forget to pause, which creates a lack of awareness and depletes our energy.
Realign your focus to what is important in your life. Spend some much needed time clearing your head and diving into your practice. Prepare to engage your mind, eat delicious meals, and have fits of laughter (probably the best part of the retreat!). Commit to your mental & physical well-being - it benefits not only you, but your loved ones too!
A powerful thing happens when we learn together, share together, and grow together.
Why join us?
It’s simple! This is the PERFECT environment to relax and have fun. Take time for yourself, while creating meaningful bonds with other likeminded individuals. Dissolve the stress of life and shed the layers of isolation that we’ve experienced these past couple of years.
Enjoy strong movement like yoga, martial arts, and qi gong. Get connected through empowering discussions and genuine interactions. Give yourself a moment to appreciate life and go home with a renewed sense of embodiment.
This retreat is MAGICAL!

Activities & Yoga
During our time together, we will share yoga, meditation, and other forms of movement classes that are suitable for all levels. The large yoga space has several windows & sliding doors that we can open for fresh air during practice. Some classes and group discussions may also be held outdoors amongst the stunning scenery.
There will be opportunities to explore the gorgeous property, free time, journaling, and other fun activities to let loose! Bring your journal, books, games, and whatever else you've been wanting to indulge in. A detailed itinerary will be sent to you prior to the retreat.
Our Property & Accomodations
This retreat will be held at a beautiful venue that’s a short 1.5 hour drive from Sacramento, in the heart of breathtaking Sonoma wine country. The venue has a lovely rural feel, nestled amid stately oaks, surrounded by rolling grass hills and vineyards in Sonoma's Valley of the Moon.
There is an outdoor pool to relax by during the day + a hot tub for soaking in under the stars. Enjoy the lovely gardens, sitting areas, farm, and walking labyrinth. Massage services may be available during free time (additional cost applies).
Delicious fresh, nutritious, and hand-made farm to table food will be prepared by wonderful cooks. Meals, drinks and coffee/tea will all be served individualized, contactless, and on separate trays or containers for each person. There will be no buffet service for any food or drinks.
Several delightful paths lead to five charming redwood cabin retreats, nestled among trees and gardens. Each room within the cabins is colorful, elegantly rustic, with its own private bathroom and area for privacy and unwinding. All rooms have at least 2 beds each.
There are a limited number of single occupancy rooms that are available on a first come, first served basis. All other rooms will be double occupancy. Either come with your friend/brother/father/etc. or have the opportunity to be paired with another person.
A note about accessibility: the property was originally established in the 1930s, and is located on a hillside. Unfortunately, the retreat center is not wheelchair accessible due to the uneven terrain. If you have any questions/concerns for your stay, please email me. I’ll do my very best to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
