Residential Retreat

NOTE: If we are not able to accommodate you in a New Dharma house, learn more about other housing options close to the New Dharma Center.

The Washoe Valley Center is located in Northern Nevada and is the primary residence of Sat Shree and Satyamayi and many of his devotees. Residential Retreats may be booked as a Short Term Retreat (1 to 10 nights) or longer Personal Retreat for the following time periods:

  • weekend
  • one, two or three weeks
  • one, two or three months

Generally, these retreats are held in quietude. You may request a silent retreat, and will be placed in a house being held in silence, or you may choose to request a retreat with an emphasis on a Gita Study course; the choice is up to you.

A Washoe wind is by no means a trifling matter. It blows flimsy houses down, lifts shingle roofs occasionally, rolls up tin ones like sheet music, now and then blows a stage-coach over and spills the passengers; and tradition says the reason there are so many bald people there is, that the wind blows the hair off their heads while they are looking skyward after their hats.

~Mark Twain about Washoe Valley
