The California Eastern Sierras Retreat is home to some of the largest mountains in the United States and has deep indigenious roots stemming back to the Paiute and Shoshone Indian Tribes that settled in the area centuries ago. Wild white sage grows abundantly across the high desert landscape, adorned with incredible flora and fauna such as Raven, Coyote, Ibex, and the iconic Barn Owl. You can sense the deep history and stories in the soil, and feel the energy in the warm nights air. The Owens Valley, Mono Valley, Mount Whitney, and neighboring Death Valley National Park, surrounds the STILLNESS RETREAT as if our base camp was held in a nest, a spiritual womb, a natural world untouched by modern technology and daily stresses.

Our base camp is held in a very special location in the heart of the Eastern Sierras with breath taking mountain views, fresh running streams on either side, and wide open spaces absolutely perfect for delving into the Yoga, Meditation, and Stillness. This specific location has been the spiritual home of hundreds of people for decades seeking peace and transformation. We hope you'll join us for this incredible Retreat in 2020 and share this truly transformative experience with us.
