  • Description

    Description

    ***Applications are now being accepted for our 2016 summer season. If you are interested in applying please inquire soon to be considered.

    The retreat center is located on 210 acres in the California coastal mountains of Sonoma County. The area is extremely bio-diverse and home to rare plants and habitats.

    The retreat center is a place stewarded primarily by LGBT for spiritual growth, personal development, yoga, body work, erotic work, community, movement and more. Half the groups who present here however are groups lead by women, and non-exclusive groups of men and women from all orientations and gender expressions.

    During the off season months, typically December and January, the retreat center spends a majority of its time with maintenance and improvement projects. Immediate opportunities are available to help support the retreat center with carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work, and we are always looking for volunteers who would like to prepare meals and rooms for our guests who come from all over the world.

    We require each volunteer work 25 hours a week in exchange for room, food, utilities, and internet. We also require you to commit 8 weeks (or more) as we invest time in training you also. Non-smokers are preferred.
