Property description

Are you looking for a quiet, serene, setting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to focus on recharging and healing your soul? This beautiful place offers your choice of seclusion or inclusion, private, self-guided contemplation and study, or attendance of group classes (Ayurvedic, Hatha Yoga, or Kriya Yoga philosophy and lifestyle classes by arrangement. Guests from all authentic enlightenment traditions are welcome to utilize the peaceful environment to renew and deepen their own spiritual practices.

There are two homes on the property: one is the lovely main estate building, offering 2 extra bedrooms for guests, and facilities for on site staff and meetings. The other home is the private 'Serenity House', which will accommodate a party of up to 12 people with double and single adult bunk beds. It is very clean comfortable and sort of a monastic environment. Rent a room for the weekend or the entire 'Serenity House'.
We offer an opportunity to connect with nature: from the expansive view of the snow capped Sierra Nevada Mts. to the local foothills of vegetation and wildlife. Gazing on the area itself is spiritually regenerative. On-site we enjoy waterfalls spilling into pools of water, the disappearing edge of the infinity pool, and the private lake with its population of resident waterfowl. The contemplation gardens offer a more personal seclusion, shared by Buddha or St Francis. While Wi-Fi is available, we encourage you to leave your electronic devices turned off, stashed away in you suitcase, so you are truly available to work with your personal spiritual growth and awareness. This Retreat Center is an environment for serious personal growth and deep inner work that we find hard to do in our normal busy lives.

Sandra has focused on providing you with the necessities and simplicity for a comfortable stay: high thread-count cotton sheets, comfortable beds, fluffy cotton towels provide your foundation of great rest and comfort during your stay. The facilities include a kitchen equipped with all the cooking and food preparation tools and appliances you can think of. The retreat also operates an organic farm that you may utilize- picking and preparing in-season fruit and veggies for your own delight during your stay.

We specialize in spiritual growth and renewal retreats and at this time we are not offering use as a venue for special events or family outings. There is a no alcohol or smoking on the grounds. You can boat or walk around the lake, enjoy the pools and hot tubs. Guests are encouraged to stay right here on the grounds and relax to the Max!

Welcome to Infinite Life Retreat! We look forward to meeting you and making your stay the 'Best Ever'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I grew up here in Placerville since I was in the 6th grade. I love El Dorado County and think it is the best possible place to live. I am a local Realtor and a great ambassador for the area. I have been studying Yoga with my teacher since high school. I was initiated into Kriya Yoga by The Self Realization Fellowship in 1970 and accepted as a student by Roy Eugene Davis in 1971. Roy Eugene Davis is a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, the founder of the Self Realization fellowship. He was ordained by him to teach and pass on the teachings of our Kriya Yoga tradition. I was ordained by Roy Eugene Davis, after 45 years of study and practice of meditation and other yoga lifestyle principals. I now represent my teacher and these teachings here in California and have set up this Retreat Facility to provide a quiet peaceful environment to practice meditation, holistic lifestyle classes and study of the philosophical principals. All sincere spiritual aspirants are welcome as long as they respect the traditions and practices of others and quietly do their own thing. This is the place to spend quality time with your self. This is the place to nurture and appreciate yourself! Really invest in yourself. You will have all the support you need to do just that.

Why the Owner Chose Placerville, CA, USA:
I have been looking for a retreat property for 25 years. When I went to see this property I knew it was the one immediately. I could visualize all the people wandering around and enjoying and benefiting from this beautiful lake and view and pools. You have to see it to know. When you first come to visit you will be swept away with the quiet and beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can sit in the swimming pool and watch the water flow over the vanishing edge into the lake with the snow capped Sierras in the distance. At dusk watch the ducks and geese fly in and settle for the night. The stars are spectacular and you can see millions from the deck or sitting around the fire pit at night. We publish a star map daily and have star parties once a month on weekends to learn about the skies and constellations. You will learn easy ways to find and identify the most common star clusters, planets and satellites. Call for our calendar of classes.
