Retreat & Renewal

SMC is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. With the continued challenges of ensuring the safety of our guests and staff, we have made the difficult decision to close on-land programs until further notice, including Retreat & Renewal. Online programs are still available. Both SMC and the Great Stupa are currently closed to visitors. Click here to learn more about our response.

Sometimes we need to step back in order to move forward. For thousands of years the practice of retreat has been valued across wisdom traditions as a time to step back, take inner care, and reawaken our deepest knowing. Join us for a spacious retreat that allows time to walk the
land, visit the Stupa, or to follow the spontaneous callings of your spirit. Our center offers the vastness, stillness and gentle support that allows you to unwind, unplug, relax, and reconnect to what is of true value in your life. Eight miles of wilderness trails invite you into the heart of our 600 acres of forest and rolling hills. Daily optional yoga classes, therapeutic massage, meditation instruction and group practice sessions help you ground in contemplative practices to calm the mind, rejuvenate the body and awaken insight and inspiration.
