About Open Sky:

Located in lovely western Sonoma County, California, a short drive from Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Petaluma or the Pacific Ocean, and only one hour north of San Francisco, Open Sky is a peaceful and inspiring setting for our practice and the process of slowing down.

We will guide you through powerful, relaxing, and transformative practices, while giving you time to be with yourself and/or connect with others.
