Spirituele Persoonlijke Retraite in Californië

Sommige gasten ervaren een prachtige energie op het moment dat ze binnenkomen bij The Expanding Light. Anderen vinden deze energie langzaam gedurende de retraite, terwijl weer andere gasten op een ochtend wakker worden met een vervuld gevoel van geluk. Ook zijn er gasten die deze energie pas ervaren nadat ze zijn vertrokken, en er dan achterkomen hoeveel deze retraite voor hen heeft betekend.

Tents and RVs

If you would like to stay in a tent or an RV, please bring your own. The Expanding Light Retreat does not provide tents or RVs. Tent camping is available from April through October on level, shaded campsites. RVs are welcome year round. However, they do not have RV facilities and hookups at this time.

Tenters are part of The Expanding Light meals and programs, so tent spaces do not include facilities for cooking or picnicking. There is a high fire danger here in the summer, so no campfires are allowed. Also, no candles, kerosene lamps or anything with an open flame.

Because of animals, no food is allowed in the tenting area. The Expanding Light Retreat does have a refrigerator behind the main kitchen, which is available for guests. The camping area has a sink with running water and an outhouse. Men's and women's bathrooms are available with showers, toilets, and sinks across the meadow from the tenting area.
