As you enter the San Geronimo Valley you abandon urban Marin and arrive into the mellow and peaceful town known as Woodacre. It is home to the Gary Giacomini Open Space Preserve and Roy’s Redwoods. Woodacre offers peace and solitude when good weather attracts hiking crowds to Mount Tamalpais. In 2000 the Dalai Lama visited Woodacre’s Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Committed to the teachings of Buddha, those who visit Spirit Rock can participate in retreats and workshops in meditation and mindfulness.
