Northern California Spiritual Retreats Testimonials

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend away at Ratna Ling. The entire program is built around your pace and the teachers are truly there to be your leaders and guides as you find your path to peace and ease. The cabins on the property as very comfortable, clean, and an architectural delight to gaze at. We spent an hour sitting outside watching the milky way above us and couldn’t believe how clearly we could see it. The food was delicious and the staff was kind and helpful. I couldn’t recommend this place more.

I did the Space and Ease retreat in December and it was Wonderful!! Just what I needed to recharge spiritually, physically and mentally. The vegetarian food was delicious. The meditation classes and yoga with Linda, Mark and Carmen were all peaceful and rejuvenating. I also loved that we had plenty of unstructured time for walks in nature, naps and reading or meditating in our cabin. Thank you, Ratna Ling!

Elizabeth B.

Love! I would give it more stars if I could. My fiancé and I did our first retreat as a couple here and it really does live up to its reputation: the teachers are amazing, the meditation is taught in a comprehensive and educational way, the vegetarian food is so good, and the location is gorgeous. The vibe is immediately soothing. We went for a compassion weekend retreat that involved learning mantra chanting and sacred art making (we made mani stones). It was so unique and I left with a much more open heart. I can’t wait to return one day!

Larissa D.

The location is amazing. The cabins are beautiful, spacious, and lovingly constructed and equipped. The meals are delicious with very fresh ingredients. The conference/yoga space is serene and well-stocked with a variety of props. But the biggest gift is the friendly, joyful, helpful staff.

The center is such a perfect union of Buddhist simplicity and luxurious comfort!! They do it better than any other similar centers that I have visited.

I had a wonderful experience at Ratna Ling. The volunteers are welcoming and generous, motivated by a strong commitment to their community, practice and teacher. I was particularly impressed by the space itself, not to mention the delicious and wholesome food. The cabins are beautifully constructed and well cared for. I look forward to returning in the future!
