Ensuring Health and Safety at our Events
As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our community is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, especially as it pertains to our live events.

With the increase in COVID-19 cases in California, and the uncertainty around California’s reopening schedule in September, we’ve made the difficult decision to reschedule the 2020 Silent Awakenings retreat for 2021.
While there is much about COVID-19 that remains uncertain, we do know that personal hygiene is of critical importance to limit the spread of disease. Here are some prevention tips from the CDC:
In addition to basic preventive measures, we encourage people to continue all of the healthy daily practices that we teach at Chopra to keep your immune system strong: meditation, ample sleep, good nutrition and regular exercise. Immune supportive herbs and supplements such as ashwaganda, amalaki, holy basil, elderberry, and echinacea, among others, can also be considered with the other preventive practices. Always check with your healthcare provider before starting new herbal supplements.
