San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center

About This Center

We are a Conscious community located on more than ten acres in the spectacular foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains close to the Cleveland National Forest next to Julian, California featuring a large native plant botanical garden and the largest labyrinth in California. Our San Diego Yoga Retreat Center is open and is a wellspring for all who love nature and Holistic Health. Our mission is to cultivate spirituality and educate guests on the importance of consciousness in their everyday lives. Our focus here is spirituality, though we don’t ignore all other holistic methods for healing, personal development and creativity. The more you are in balance with yourself and your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual body the more meaning you have in your own life and a “Life is Good” attitude thrives. With the surrounding nature, you'll be able to connect with nature and feel spirituality in the air.

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
