Hidden Valley Ashram is an ideal setting for men seeking an environment founded on the teachings of our guru, Paramahansa Yogananda. The weekly schedule includes: individual and group meditations, inspirational classes, satsangas, service, recreational activities, and time for solitude and reflection. Spiritual counseling with monastics is also available.
Spread over one hundred acres of rural land in eastern San Diego county, the ashram is about 120 miles south of Los Angeles and 40 miles northeast of San Diego.
Nestled among rolling hills, this spiritual haven has secluded trails for contemplative walks, as well as beautiful rock formations for meditation, relaxing, and enjoying God’s beauty and intelligence in nature. Guests and residents enjoy group meditations, inspirational classes, satsangas, voluntary service and recreation. You will also have time for solitude, reflection and spiritual counseling with the monks.
The ashram is a part of Self-Realization Fellowship, founded by Paramahansa Yogananda, has approximately thirty full-time residents, including a number of monks and guests who serve in the various ashram departments. You will have the opportunity to serve and meditate with the monks and other residents.
“The value of being part of a spiritual community can really only be known after having experienced it firsthand. Deep bonds are formed between all those involved: meditating and serving together in a beautiful and harmonious environment such as Hidden Valley strengthens everyone and creates a support system unmatched by any other.”
“I can read Master’s How-To-Live teachings and get some understanding; but going to Hidden Valley I see, feel, and am lovingly supported in how to live.”
“This is a great place! A rare jewel! I can only come once a year, but my few days here have become a highlight each year to re-energize my spiritual practice and to relax from the stress of the world.”
