Spiritual Retreats - Strengthening Your Inner Life

“All the teachers taught from the heart. They believe in what they are teaching. They all are examples of how to live in the divine. This is a wonderful way to reach your inner self.”
Tim, Alameda, CA


A gathering at the Crystal Hermitage

The pull of outward responsibilities, desires, and deep restlessness is stronger than ever these days. When you try to move in too many directions at once, stress is inevitable. What can you do? Strengthen your INNER life.

These programs offer you ways to re-connect with the deep peace, love, and joy within your own being. Connecting with your higher Self can rejuvenate you as nothing else. You may find even a weekend can uplift you in ways you cannot imagine.

All classes are based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
