Our retreat facility can sleep from 10 to 280 participants and seats up to 500 in our largest indoor meeting space. Most of the unique buildings at our site were built by world-renowned architects, Frank Lloyd Wright and his son, Lloyd.
We are uniquely located in Joshua Tree, California, only two hours from Los Angeles, two hours from San Diego, and 3 ½ hours from Las Vegas, Nevada, creating a distinctive vortex between three major (vital) cities.
This land, though desert, rests upon an aquifer, a running river, producing an intriguing magnetic effect on those who enter this ancient and sacred space. Yogananda had walked this land in earlier times. It truly is a magical place.
