Retreat Campus

We've been welcoming guests to The Expanding Light Retreat from around the world for over 45 years. Many types of groups have deepened their own mission and member experience by spending time in our uplifting space nestled within Ananda Village.

Our retreat campus includes a large community dining room, octagonal Teaching Temple, and a large outdoor piazza for dining and congregating. We have 4 large buildings with varying levels of accommodations, deluxe rooms with ensuite baths, standard rooms with hallway baths, as well as cabins. Our large gardens and meadows provide ample space to enjoy nature.
