Retreats in Nature, Gathered in Community
Big Bear Retreat Center is a restorative space for healing and creativity. We humbly offer a supportive environment to gather in community for movement, stillness and practice, trusting in the power of embodied mindfulness and authentic connection.
Just 2.5 hours from Los Angeles, a thousand acres of protected land as your home
Big Bear Retreat Center offers nourishment, rest and spacious land to hold you. Our buildings are carefully tended, calm and comfortable. Rooms are simple, single or shared. We cook with foods that nourish. Our tranquil land, originally tended by the Yuhaviatam (“People of the Pines”), is nestled in 1,400 acres of ancient Juniper woodland to help you recollect and realign with what matters most.
We are committed to accessibility
Big Bear Retreat Center has faith in the power of belonging and generosity. We bring careful attention to our fees, and we’ll do everything we can to get you here. We honor and respect where you are in your life journey.
