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.

Short-Term Retreat Program 

(1-10 nights)

If you are attending a New Dharma program, we invite you to come as a visitor to the Washoe Valley Center before or after your program. Note: Please have your dates approved early. Accommodations are limited and rooms will fill up fast.

Personal Retreat Program

Personal Retreats are an opportunity to spend time in silence and stillness and to participate in an enhanced experience of New Dharma residential activities. Generally, these retreats are held in quietude.

You may choose to focus on silence, or you may decide to undertake a deeper study of the Bhagavad Gita or the Mother Book. Other choices might be to follow the structure of a 6-or 9-day retreat, using the audio and written materials to guide your retreat.

  • One, two or three weeks
    $300 per week. Begins on Sunday.
  • One, two or three months
    $1,000 per month. Begins on first of month.

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
