Coming to Mt. Shasta is a pilgrimage. For thousands of years this land
has been honored as sacred and has been recognized as a place of great healing and
spiritual power. The Native tribes have considered the mountain to be the sacred center
of the universe and still perform their ceremonies there to this day.

The mountain is also home to stunning hiking trails, mountain biking
and picnic spots in the spring and summer and skiing in the winter and is
only 20 minutes from the retreat center. Shasta Lake is also a
favorite for swimming, walking and nature
is unparalleled.


We are set at the foothills of Mt. Shasta, embraced by national forest on all sides.
Pine and cedar trees, wildflowers, green mountains, deer, a deep velvet night sky
full of bright stars and the healing mineral waters of Parks Creek
running through the 15-acre property make this place unique.

Here you will find yourself surrounded by a radiant, nurturing natural
environment where you feel more connected and awake.
