Sandra will give talks and meet with participants privately and in the afternoon dialogue group in this autumn retreat.

Sandra Gonzalez began working with Toni Packer in 1988. Previously, she studied at other meditation centers. in 2003 Toni asked her to be one of the people to help carry on the meditative work of the Center. Sandra spends part of the year in Springwater. She also leads or participates in several retreats away from Springwater each year.

Born and raised in Nicaragua, Sandra has three children and seven grandchildren that she visits regularly. She can be contacted by e-mail in English or Spanish at

Sandra writes,

Presence invites presence when there is no resistance, no ownership of ideas, experiences or things, no worrying, no hurrying, no judging, no defending–just the ease of life when we meet without wanting things to be otherwise. Certainly we all can participate; presence is free and available to all of us. There is a true beauty in this.
