Calendar of Events

There is nothing to learn, nothing to change nothing to attain. In our deep meditations and open conversations, we can relax into pure being, without straining. Whether for a weekend intensive or a 10 day retreat, come back to the natural freedom of your truest heart, to your one abiding friend, Love. Based on the non-dual traditions founded by Sri Ramana Maharshi, our journey of self-discovery is simple and direct, and welcomes anyone who seeks gentle guidance towards grace.

Lodging at Hale Kephart

There are several spacious and comfortable rooms with shared bath available at the retreat site. The rooms include access to a communal kitchen and other facilities. Our retreat home is located in a quiet residential area with breathtaking views of the ocean and is just a short drive to the beach. Staying at the retreat site can be a wonderful way to help keep the attention turned inward toward the heart and invites a deep immersion into the stillness.
