Experience Peace in the Heart of Nature

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 are 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.

Enjoy one of our group retreats or programs led by our caring and joyful staff or, if you prefer to be on your own, come visit us for a Personal Retreat stay.

We look forward to your visit!

What guests are saying...

This place is the gift that every person on the planet deserves to give themselves. The food, the staff, the beautiful gardens, and the love the flows from every aspect of the retreat restore body, mind and soul. P.Y. Reno, NV
At Ananda, you feel welcome. Whatever faith or background you are from, you are welcome. The garden holds energy that you can feel through your body. The yoga is gently guided and you can come with little or no experience. The practices for meditation that are taught take you to another level of relaxation.
— I would highly, highly recommend. S.L. Grass Valley, CA
My visit to Ananda Meditation Retreat was a really powerful and unique experience that I would recommend to anyone. The staff is very supportive and respectful of every path. Their kindness and joyfulness are a perfect example of what life could be if we were all willing to accept and respect each other.Pierre Monserrat, Sainte-Crois Vallee, France
