Seven Circles is a retreat center started by Subud California in 2003. Many spiritual and community groups currently have retreats there, and we are once again inspired to host retreats for Subud members and their families. Sulfiati Harris is running these retreats, and is doing it using the logistics she has developed for Camp Badger, the summer nonprofit summer camp for local children and teens that she has run, with help from a grant from Susila Dharma USA, for the last 9 years.
In November, 2017 we put on a retreat for Subud California, and were excited to have 40 Subud members and their families come to that retreat. Now we plan three of these per year, in winter, spring and fall. The next one is on Earth Day weekend, April 20-22, 2018.
