7 Day Winter Retreat at Mount Madonna, CA with The Teacher & Leong

Please come to spend a week with The Teacher, Leong and community at the most beautiful Mount Madonna Center in Santa Cruz, California. This retreat center offers a beautiful, warm natural setting for retreat with 380 acres of redwood groves, hiking trails, and meadows infused with a sense of peace, spaciousness, and heartfelt service. The community staff and the serene landscape provide a nourishing backdrop to support and inspire us as we delve into our private retreat with The Teacher and Leong.

All meals are delicious vegetarian and lovingly prepared, with gluten-free and dairy-free options and boiled eggs offered at breakfast. No animal meat products are permitted on the campus but if you are a carnivore, there are restaurants in town with a 30-minute drive down the mountain.

All housing will be double occupancy with very comfortable accommodations, many with windows facing Monterey Bay. You can register with a chosen roommate or we will match you with someone. The shared bath options have private showers and private toilets in a dormitory-style hall bathroom. The private bath options are limited with an ensuite bath option.

Mount Madonna Center is approximately 2 hours driving time south of San Francisco, in the Santa Cruz Mountains of the Central California coast overlooking Monterey Bay from Santa Cruz to Monterey and Pacific Grove. The closest commercial airport to us is San Jose International with San Francisco International being the second closest.
