All Upcoming California Meditation Retreats

Looking to restore your soul with a meditation retreat in California?

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 meditation practice, explore the options below and let us know if you have any questions.

If you’re a meditation or spiritual teacher, tell us about what you offer here!

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, California is home to many beautiful options for a self guided experience.

If you’re looking for a more meditative or spiritual retreat beyond California, browse our Upcoming Spiritual + Meditation Retreats across North America. We’d love to hear from you if you have any advice on retreats we should try and review! Get in touch here.
