A forty-foot geodesic dome, stained in a redwood-earthen color, nestles in atop one of the rolling hills in Sonoma County, not far from the village of Freestone, and only 15 miles from Bodega Bay and the ocean. Pines and douglas firs, oaks and madrones creep up the nearby slopes, yet from its westward-facing deck, a panoramic view greets the eyes: gentle hills and valleys stretching to the horizon, a lone "mountain" rising in the distance. The peaceful nature - the space - of the surroundings, and the space within the dome lend themselves to the repose and quietude for a spiritual as well as a physical retreat.
