Monthly Rates & Rooms

Month-long & Ongoing Personal Retreats

Photos and rates of individual rooms are below. Feel free to schedule an appointment with us to visit, view rooms and see the premises.

We are located one block away from UC Berkeley in the foothills, just far enough away from the city for a peaceful and quiet environment, and close enough to be conveniently located. Our Front Desk is staffed every day from 10 AM – 6 PM.

We are a reserved but warm community which is accepting of non-Buddhist and Buddhist individuals. We only ask that you be respectful, and help maintain a harmonious and quiet environment.

If you’d like to stay for a few nights only, please see:  Overnight Stays
