“Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jennifer and Memo immediately and whisked away on a brisk neighborhood walk, after having dropped off our bags in our room. Our room was incredibly spacious and fully functional — full kitchen, full living room, full bedroom. Even for being in such a woodland fantasy, the room was perfectly neat and clean for our entire stay. During the workshops, Jennifer’s bright and cheerful way of introducing us to such informed topics as psychometry, psychic/mediumship work and spiritual healing made learning easy as well as moving. Although Memo’s spirit was always calming and peaceful, his spiritual discussions were passionate and spirited in a way that inspired intelligent discussion. Connie, our yoga teacher was always a delight and a wonderful teacher. By far the most surprising, the vegan food blew us away. Each dish prepared by Elizabeth and the wonderful volunteers was better than the next. In fact, Elizabeth and her spirit, along with the volunteers, M.J., Brian and Nell, simply made the retreat more enjoyable in every moment and it felt like they were all meant to be there for a reason.”
We are a Conscious Community located on more than ten acres in the spectacular foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains on the northern part of the Cleveland National Forest right next to Julian, California. The land borders the 3700 acre Santa Ysabel Preserve. Our San Diego Yoga Retreat Center is open and is a wellspring for all who love nature and Holistic Health. Our mission is to cultivate spirituality and educate guests on the importance of consciousness in their everyday lives. Our focus here is spirituality, though we don’t ignore all other holistic methods for healing, personal development and creativity. The more you are in balance with yourself and your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual body the more meaning you have in your own life and a “Life is Good” attitude thrives.
Life is a very dynamic and living thing which is ever-changing, and therefore no philosophy of the past can be applied directly to life which takes place only in the present moment. Philosophy or teachings might point out an important truth and much can be learned from them but one should never get stuck at any of them since life must be explored from moment to moment and that means one must continue one’s inner journey of discovery at this present moment. This is the only door opening to the path of true happiness and liberation.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Jennifer hosts an amazing retreat. It was fun filled with activities, learning how to cook, and eating amazing food. You can tell she really cares about creating a once in a lifetime experience. I work 60+ hours a week, and this is exactly what I needed, a break for myself to get back on track. My boyfriend came with me who isn't vegan and still enjoyed himself. This is an amazing experience that I plan to go back to again. You will not be disappointed.
I recently enjoyed the 3 day Inward Nakedness Retreat at the San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center. It was 3 days and 2 nights of pure quiet, relaxation and no pressure. The area is beautiful and charming, the homemade vegan food was fantastic and the staff was super friendly and professional. Jennifer and Memo really made everyone feel comfortable, welcome and cared for. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this retreat!
"San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center is truly a special place tucked away in a lovely mountain location, whether you're looking for a yoga getaway, vegan cooking, or for a deeper inward reflection without the normal daily distractions. I visited for a weekend retreat focused on removing inner blocks and was reminded of the spiritual journey I started years ago. Memo is a warm and wise guide who speaks from the heart. And Jennifer is the caring host with a kind soul who tirelessly makes delicious vegan cuisine. The yoga and hiking in a serene backdrop are a huge bonus. I plan on going back to SDSRC again -- perhaps as a regular guest! -- and highly recommend it. "
"My wife and I stayed there for a mind/body retreat birthday getaway. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. We appreciated - and participated in - optional activities including yoga each morning. The main house had a special comfort - it was also where we met for group activities. We had fun helping to prepare and enjoy meals together. We learned about foods and innovative preparations. We had an epic hike among other delights. Jennifer and Memo provided a safe, peaceful, and inspired environment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. PS. Jennifer has an exquisite voice and if you can inspire her to sing for you, you're in for a special treat:)"
This place was exactly what I needed. It was homey and comforting, and had amazing food and activities. There were eight people total, four guests, two staff, and two session speakers. Everyone present was uniquely talented and brought an amazing family vibe to the weekend. I highly recommend the hike, we went to Volcan mountain. I'm stoked to come back again during harvest season. Jennifer was an amazing hostess and provided above and beyond service, really an incredible woman with a serving heart. Danann was our amazing chef and yoga instructor. What a lovely woman she was! I stayed here in February 2016 and plan to return in the fall.
Dearest Jennifer and Memo, Thank you so much for a wonderful few days. The SDSRC is a very special place. I have found my time here to be greatly healing. Walking, yoga, meditation and eating delicious food are my most favorite things. Jennifer you are a fantastic chef, I loved your food and here learnt so much. Thank you Memo for the lovely walk and stimulating discussions, and of course Thank you Prtham for the stories, The fire and The poetry. I won’t forget this time. Hope to see you again one day, Lexy (MALTA)
Thank you Jennifer, Memo, and Prtham for a wonderful yoga, and vegan retreat. This experience was more than what I expected. Thank you for being so welcoming and for sharing your stories and experiences. Through this retreat I grew stronger and more grounded. Jennifer, thank you for giving your heart in designing this beautiful retreat. I truly felt your love, warmth and acceptance you bring out in everything you do; especially in your delicious meals and snacks. Memo, thank you for bringing me on the most beautiful hike I’ve ever been on and for showing me a lovely sunset. Words can’t describe the beauty I’ve experienced during this retreat. Prtham, Thank you for sharing the love for your music and deep poetry. You truly have a beautiful gift. The memories I’ve made here I will keep forever in my heart. Thank you again. Dorothy.
