Your heart knows the way
Run in that direction


Program Description

This four-day retreat at Green Gulch Farm is a rare opportunity to create an intimate community through the exploration of the Enneagram. Surrounded by gardens and bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the setting supports deep listening and a fuller expression of our inner truth. The wisdom of the Enneagram is a powerful path to breaking down habitual internal obstacles and awakening the heart.

At this retreat we will:

  • Create rituals to open and awaken the heart

  • Uncover the ways we protect our hearts

  • Cultivate self-acceptance through heart opening practices

  • Deepen individual and collective healing through our circle

  • Commune with nature to guide us back home

  • Expand our capacity to bring our gifts into the world

  • Explore body, heart and mind using movement, music and art

  • Develop meaningful, intimate connections and friendships 



Green Gulch Farm is located in a beautiful coastal valley just a short drive north of San Francisco in Marin County, (Getting here). Surrounded by hundreds of acres of national parkland, its organic farm and gardens provide a serene environment along with delicious vegetarian meals. There are 8 private rooms with queen beds and 4 large rooms with twin beds. Each two rooms share a bathroom.

As a coach I work the Enneagram in conjunction with other modalities to help clients recognize their patterns and bring forth their highest potential.


My coaching style is influenced by many experiences including Somatic/Trauma training, the study of Buddhism, Diamond Heart teachings, and mindfulness training. Growing up in Israel on a kibbutz and raising two children has also been instrumental in informing my coaching.

Credentials and training: International Coaching Federation (ICF) Certified Coach, International Enneagram Association (IEA) Certified Teacher, Trained in Somatic Experiencing; Trained in Hakomi Method; BA in Psychology, Teaching Credential.
