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. 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. The Center consists of several single-story buildings and cabins for dining, meditation and sleeping.
Residential Cabins: we offer 11 cabins on campus (35 bedrooms total). Each cabin is equipped with bedrooms (3-4), bathrooms (2), a kitchen, living room, wifi, and private deck in nature. Our cabins and rooms are simply furnished with a balance of comfort and simplicity. All beds are twin, and all bedding is provided by the center. Rooms are single or shared. We offer 60 beds total on campus.
The Meditation Hall:
Our beautiful meditation hall is a large room that accommodates most meditation and movement retreats. We have supplies for most participants, but guests are always welcome to bring their own supplies (not required). Guests can typically expect to have access to a zabutan (large cushion), zafu (small cushion), yoga mat, blocks, a meditation chair, a blanket and a selection of other yoga and meditation props with limited supplies. If you’re unsure, please contact us or visit our welcome guide for more details.
The Center provides fresh, healthy meals made with seasonal and organic ingredients to support a nourishing time in retreat. Meals begin with dinner on arrival evening through to breakfast on departure morning. For this retreat, meals will be offered to support meditation retreat practice with a simple medium breakfast, hearty lunch, and light dinner (typically soup and salad). All meals will be vegetarian, and we accommodate most major dietary restrictions. Snacks will be available in the dining hall 24/7, including teas and coffees. The Center has refrigerators in the cabins and dining area for guests to store their own snacks – please bring any foods that might support your time here.
*Extra Meals on Departure day: The last meal included on your departure day is breakfast. Lunch and/or dinner may be added for an additional fee.
Dinner NOT available March 18th. Extra Meals must be reserved during the registration process or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
