We believe that a deep, significant and successful life requires effective tools and serious practice for both your inner and outer life.
We believe that success and sustainable happiness in commerce, family, and daily life is found thru deep spiritual practice and effective tools.
We believe that the purpose of a spiritual practice is to develop the skills to go into the world and create sustainable happiness, lead successful and bold lives that make humanity better.
JOIN US for this week long adventure boot camp; training to ignite our inner lives and effectively use these skills to lead outer lives that are kind, meaningful, joy filled, world altering and beautiful reflections of spiritwork.

“Deep in a Redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains, The Sequoia Retreat Center has been held sacred since 1949, it’s a place where love has been experienced, where pain has been transcended and where hope is born. .. It’s where the deepest meaning of life can be explored in an atmosphere of quite and beauty. .. Our hope is that your stay here enriches your life, and the life of our earth that is our place in the universe. May you add to the spirit of love that builds and nourishes this sacred place, and return to your daily life renewed: This history of Sequoia is a history of seasons, beauty, spirit and truth. This can never be communicated by factors or descriptions… it must be experienced first hand.”
The Sequoia is the perfect “basecamp” for our adventure, offering easy access to Big Sur & Esalen, the Pacific Coast, Big Basin Redwood State Park , Muir Woods and multiple Temples and sacred spaces we’ll be exploring together…..
Enchanting private cottages with options for single, double, or triple occupancy ( price adjusted ) with private bathrooms and modern conveniences and outdoor private space.
Incredible locally grown organic food for any diet, made by loving people and served indoors, outdoors, or prepared for “to go” as our adventures require…
Multiple indoor and outdoor fire pits, a peace garden, hiking trails thru the redwoods, an amphitheatre nestled in a redwood circle…endless sitting and walking meditation venues.
Excellent Cell phone coverage (but we think you should leave it behind!)
Wi-Fi is complementary and available in main building ( but what for, time to unplug!!)
Meditating on the beach, gathering under the waterfalls near Esalen, silent hiking in Big Basin Redwood Forest…
You’ll have a rare opportunity to experience this sacred place with a guy who’s hiked every inch, knows all the back roads and secret spaces…
it’s in the world, not of it…._/\_
