Upcoming Retreats and workshops 

I had no idea how profound the training was going to be. Looking back now, I can’t imagine my life if I hadn’t done this.   Emily Steinberg

Retreats and Workshops at Manzanita Village. Retreats at Manzanita Village are an integration of silence, deep inner work, and learning skills that you can bring into your life to help transform yourself, your relationship with those you care for, and the world. 

Caitriona and Michele are artists, improvisors, and intuitives. Their work continues to evolve and change. They continue to study and train with teachers in multiple disciplines and traditions. We often surprise ourselves! Curiosity is a huge motivator for us. As the Dalai Lama once said in a meeting we attended some years ago, “It’s the job of a Bodhisattva to be interested in everything.” 

We are senior teachers in the dual lineages of Vipassana and Zen. In addition, we are also facilitators and teachers of Deep Ecology, Neurolinguistics, Clinical Hypnosis, and Family, Organizational, and Systems Constellation work. We have led retreats and workshops internationally for several decades and have been at the forefront of bringing Socially Engaged Spiritual Practice into public awareness.

Our passion is to help people bring their authentic selves into their daily life to lead us all towards the World we long for ..

None of us are Broken! None of us are Perfect! None of us are Done! And Each of us is Unique

Manzanita Village is a no-joke place!! This is a bring-all-your-wisdom, bring-all-your-honesty, and bring-all-your-bullshit place. Because we live in a time that’s filled with chaos and confusion. But things get a whole lot clearer here. — Jamie Grace Davis

Ongoing Meditation

Monday, Thursday, Saturday  8:00 AM PST via Zoom

This meditation series has changed my life! and the lives of my family! for the positive! Seriously! Maxine Meltzer (participant in previous series)

Whatever you are feeling right now,
whatever you’re taking in of the varieties of spin
that seem to proliferate from all directions,one thing is clear ..

we are being called to humility, awareness,
and gratitude for the capacity we have
to tune in to the core human values
that have fed our ancestors for milenia.

The guided meditations have helped me reconnect with my sense of the divine,  the beauty of life, and brought me great joy amidst this challenging period when so many suffer. Charlie Miles (participant in previous series)

I am utterly and subtly and profoundly and irrevocably transformed by my time at Manzanita Village. Thank you both. Darya Norvet

 Caitriona and Michele create a transformation that’s so deep and  penetrating and powerful, because it’s not preconceived. They allow each person to go through their process and make it their own. In so many other trainings and retreats they manufacture a ‘peak experience’ and then attempt to ‘integrate’ it, which is then followed by inevitable disappointment.
Peak experience and integration happen together here, and real integration and transformation then flood into your life as you bring your learning into the world. — Meredith Smith
