Experience a time of peace and reflection during a 3-day retreat at a northern California monastery. The Abbey of New Clairvaux is a Catholic Cistercian monastery near Chico. However, you need not be Catholic or Christian to attend the retreat. Explore your spirituality among the walnut groves and vineyards through silence, a group session with one of the abbey monks and a group book discussion. The abbey is on the site of Leland Stanford’s massive wine-making operation and features its own on-site winery. Course fee includes guestroom and all meals. You must provide your own transporation to and from the monastery.
