Manzanita Village

About This Center

Manzanita Village is the physical home of Five Changes and Ordinary Dharma.

We hold NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner Certification Trainings, as well as other Retreats and Workshops that integrate the full range of our work here,

Private Clients also come for Personalized one-on-one Mentoring Retreats.

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.

We moved here several years ago to lead retreats and workshops because of its ideal location. While close to the cities of Southern California, time has stopped here. The spaciousness of the land, the undisturbed peace, star-filled night sky, clean air and water (from our own well), the many trails, the natural wildlife habitat .. makes this an ideal place for learning, creativity, and going deep for inner transformation.

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.
