Personal Retreat

Kids SmilingIn addition to the schedule of Themed Retreats, Magnolia Grove is open for personally planned visits almost every week of the year. This is a wonderful opportunity to truly come home: to rest, refresh and heal, and cultivate mindfulness in daily life. Join the community of monks, nuns and lay practitioners in following the daily rhythm and practice schedule of the monastery. We invite you to join us for a deep experience of mindful living for a two-week, one-week, or weekend retreat, as we continue to celebrate the wonders of life and the joy of living mindfully in the present moment. Open to individuals, couples, families, and small groups.  (If your group is larger than eight, please contact our registration office to plan for a Group Retreat.) Arrivals are on Friday.
