Arriving at the retreat farmhouse is like coming home. A lovely, well appointed kitchen where meals are prepared in simple silence, beautiful views of the quiet countryside, and the meditation room where the stone walls seem to breathe peace... How I love to return each year! Ruth and Bruce, although now in residence at the California retreat, have created a... More

In the peace and quiet of this place, I found solace in peace and spiritual renewal. The untainted beauty of nature and the history of the saints, both St. Francis and St. Clare live in the surrounding, making me feel holy and pure. I found myself more inclined to pray and be at peace with myself and the surrounding abounding... More

Our retreat leader, Shari really looked after both myself and the other guest throughout our stay. It was my first meditation retreat and it really met my expectations. Shari was warm, caring and went... More

It is not possible to write in words how much beauty can you see in such a small place... I traveled with a group of friends, our stay was somewhat short, but it was worth it. There is much to see and experience! Tranquility and endless joy :)

All 5 in our group were so thankful we got to be here. We hadn't planned on it, but had hired a cab in City Center to take us to San Damiano and he mentioned going here too. It was a highlight. A friar who spoke perfect English gave us a beautiful explanation and we got to meet some of... More
