We are located approximately 38 miles east of Fresno, California, just off Highway 180. Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Parks are located nearby and offer a spectacular place to visit while you are staying with us. 

Our retreat center is located at the 2,000-foot elevation, and thus can get chilly in the spring and fall and cold in the winter. Our lodges feature comfortable accommodations with individual heating and air-conditioning units and private baths. Linen and towels are provided for each guest.  No pets are allowed. 

If you will be visiting the monastery you should bring the appropriate attire which includes an ankle length skirt or dress with long sleeves and a scarf for women, and long pants and long sleeves for men.
