Southern California’s high desert spiritual retreat center
Our retreat center is nestled at the southern end of 165 acres of property surrounded by mountains in the high desert of Southern California. The retreat center (Shala) boasts a 1000 square foot practice space, a kitchenette, a den, a dormitory that houses 24 participants, four private guest rooms, two full bathrooms and one half bath.
We have a 480 square foot kitchen constructed of strawbale and cob which is a stand-alone structure fully stocked with commercial kitchen equipment. This kitchen was the first of our permaculture projects and was constructed by many helping hands.
Our outdoor bathing deck supports a hot tub, bathtub, steam sauna with shower, toilet and 4 outdoor shower stalls. Our other deck surrounds a full size saltwater pool.
We have 4 composting toilets on the property, a cob Fogon oven, and a 48 ft Geodesic Dome.
