Surrounded by 72 acres of beautiful meditation gardens and wild forest in Northern California’s Sierra Foothills, the Ananda Meditation Retreat is an ideal setting for a rejuvenating, inner experience.

Our Meditation Retreat has been a place of deep meditation and sincere devotion for over fifty years. Long before that, the Maidu Indians held this to be sacred land. The beauty and presence of the Divine is tangibly felt by all who come here.

Studies show that being in nature and using techniques such as forest bathing can greatly reduce stress and blood pressure while strengthening your immune system, concentration, and level of happiness. We provide an ideal setting for quiet immersion in nature.

Plan your own personal retreat or enjoy one of our retreats or programs led by our caring and joyful staff.

Due to the extra care taken to ensure the safety of
guests and staff, onsite stays are booked through
our office.
