Registrations Closed

We gather together in support for each other. We gather that we may each realize alive, awake, joyous, silent beingness. May our deepening realization be endless and fresh. So fresh that it has never been even imagined.

This Silent Retreat with spiritual teacher and author Gangaji is a time of deep contemplation and rest, a time to let go of all your usual life activities, and let yourself sink into the vast simplicity of being. The retreat takes place amid the rare beauty of the high-desert foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains, about 100 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles at the Royal Way Retreat Center. Our group will have exclusive use of this beautiful property.

Accommodations

Royal Way accommodates up to 125 people in four new hillside buildings, two country-style bungalows, and four retreat houses. The new buildings feature twin rooms with large en-suite bathroom shared by two bedrooms. Each bungalow room has a private bath and sleeps up to three. All are a short walk from the meeting hall.

Meals are included in the room rate. We recommend that you register as soon as possible to ensure your preferences. Rooms are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are a snorer, please consider choosing a single room.

Special Needs:
While Royal Way is able to provide housing for most individuals with special needs, we need to know about them at least two weeks prior to the retreat in order for Royal Way to have time to see if they can be accommodated. Please e-mail details to Events at the Gangaji Foundation.

Meals

Royal Way offers abundant, healthy meals with entrees that include chicken and fish, as well as fresh ingredients from the organic vegetable gardens on the property. We are happy to accommodate vegetarians. The dining room overlooks a cypress-ringed lawn, with a view that extends across the desert to nearby mountain ranges.

Meals begin with dinner on September 30 and end with lunch on October 4, and include breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition coffee, hot water, teas and other beverages will be available throughout the day.
