With the insight, vision and help of generous donors and supporters, OM Sanctuary will become a leading model for a combined community and nature-sensitive retreat center. Natural beauty has a way of calming the nervous system and connecting us to our natural rhythms. Studies on holistic practices continue to acknowledge the mind-body connection in certain forms of depression, anxiety, weight gain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, migraines, memory problems, irritability, and relationship difficulties.

OM Sanctuary offers classes, demonstrations, lectures, training, day-long and extended-stay programs on topics such as life enrichment, stress reduction, modeling health for children, cooking for health, yoga, and meditation. Guests have access to well-being services, healthy food, and other resources for mindful living. We invite guests to disconnect from their cell phones and computers to reconnect with their natural rhythms and inner wisdom. Several areas of campus will be cell-phone and computer free.

The beautiful 54-acre property provides ample outdoor space to reflect and de-stress. OM Sanctuary creates a community for individuals to feel supported as they live, love, learn, and laugh together.
