This retreat is co-offered by Shalem—the Jewish Wellness Initiative of the Peninsula JCC, Embodied Jewish Learning, the Addison-Penzak JCC, and the Oshman Family JCC. The retreat will be held at the Land of the Medicine Buddha Retreat Center in Soquel, California. Event fees include room & board and tuition for the entire weekend.
