Personal Retreats

Mountain Cloud’s regular residency program has been suspended since the Covid lockdown, but we are open for personal retreats for self-directed individuals with an existing meditation practice. We are located in a beautiful setting on the edge of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We have a lovely adobe zendo for sitting and many outdoor paths for walking and contemplating.

All renters on personal retreats must have their own transportation and supply their own food which they cook themselves in the Mountain Cloud kitchen. Renters are expected to participate in our daily sitting sessions 7-8am and 5.30-6.30pm in our zendo and participate in work practice (samu) about five hours per week.

We are currently NOT accepting personal retreat applications for the remainder of 2021. You may apply for 2022.  

All visitors/renters must be fully vaccinated for covid-19 and the minimum stay is one month.
