About This Center

Groundswell is an emerging ecovillage and retreat center located in the southern tip of the Anderson Valley. Just two hours north of San Francisco, our goals are to develop both a vibrant and sustainable intentional community as well as a thriving center for environmental and cultural education and transformation.

Groundswell Institute’s retreat center facilities are available for rentals to outside groups or individuals. We want to share the ability to use our campground and more with groups that hold our values in common. We have ten cabins, a dining hall, bathhouse, event barn, and more – plenty to host groups of up to one hundred – nestled in one of the most stunning areas in Northern California

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.
