Private retreats for individuals and couples are offered at the Center for Spiritual Renewal, the beautiful stone manor house on the La Casa property. The Center provides an environment of gentle quiet where all are welcome to pursue their spiritual path whatever their journey. The Center is an oasis of peace where people come to discover, nurture, and reconnect with their deeper life’s purpose. Those wanting silent retreat are welcome.
Two types of accommodations are available. The original manor house has seven bedrooms with private baths and three with shared baths. Three nutritious, gourmet quality, garden-to-table meals are served. Breakfast and lunch are self-serve and dinner is a shared meal, with an option to eat alone for those in silence. Accommodations are available Tuesday through Sunday.
The smaller Hermitage, a three-bedroom cottage, is available seven days a week. Guests prepare their own meals or can arrange for meals at La Casa, when available. The cottage has a shared common room and kitchen, and each guest room has a private bath and entrance. It is suitable for those who want to make a longer retreat stay. It accommodates up to five persons making a retreat alone or together as a small group.
The Center staff offer warm hospitality and are available to support guests’ retreat experience with dialogue, spiritual direction, and suggestions about the extensive library resources. In addition to the library, there is a shared dining and gathering room with enclosed courtyard, a small meditation chapel, Corita Kent art gallery, and terrace patio with views of the grounds and rose gardens. The Center is surrounded by 26 acres of great natural beauty filled with mountain views, gardens, orchard, paths, pool, labyrinth, and numerous places for quiet contemplation.
Centering prayer, meditation, and evening prayers are offered to support your time of retreat if you wish to participate.
Individuals and couples seeking to deepen their spiritual lives are welcome.
