Manzanita Village

Manzanita Village is the physical home of Five Changes and Ordinary Dharma. Manzanita Village is nestled at the mouth of a small canyon, in the mountains of northeast San Diego county. By car, we are two-an-a-half hours from Los Angeles, and two hours from San Diego. We overlook rolling grasslands, mountains, and hills, and are surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of natural wildlife habitat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
