I have been looking for a retreat center, preferably on the West Coast. I found Sacred Spaces, and the Tree Of Life. I was wondering if anyone had been or had any advice on those or any of the retreat centers.
I am specifically battling with depression and food addiction. A lot of the retreat centers i have read about you have to schedule far in advance, or they don't have current schedules, and I would like to go as soon as possible.
have you considered Esalen in Big Sur, CA?
i had a friend who volunteered there.
i heard it's very easy going and laid back!!!
i think the peacefulness will be most excellent for depression and food addiction..........(which i am experiencing, too).
