Our host for the retreat is a community of Buddhist seekers that own and operate the retreat located in the San Jacinto mountains near Idylwild. The monks live and work, and have created a place that is dedicated to spiritual seeking. The atmosphere is reverential, beautiful, relaxing and invigorating. All of our needs are taken care of. The meals are vegetarian (but very hearty!) and are served three times a day. We are the only renters of the cabins and rooms so we get to have a completely immersive experience.
