15+ Top California Meditation Retreats 2019

California is home to some of the world’s top meditation teachers and retreat centers, including Mount Madonna, Esalen, 1440 Multiversity, and Spirit Rock all of which offer nature therapy while you expand your meditation practice or dive deeper into your life’s journey.

Whether you’re after a spiritual reset, or an immersion into your favorite meditation practice, explore the options below and let us know if you have any questions.

If you’re a meditation or spiritual teacher, you can post and promote your meditation retreats (no charge!). Our intention is to support people on their journey from the head to the heart.

While some meditation retreats follow the format of a particular tradition like Zen or Vipasanna, others are more about the transmission and wisdom of the meditation teacher, which is definitely true of people like Adyashanti, Gangaji and Jeannie Zandi.

If you’re looking for a self guided experience, you’ll find refuge to go inwards at places like Ratna Ling, Ananda, The Expanding Light, and small quaint settings like the Peppertree Retreat Center.
