Flowing Waters welcomes groups of diverse paths, needs, and incomes, who hold an intention of increasing Unity and Light. We are a Mindfulness Practice Center, integrating meditation and ethics into daily life and our interactions.
Namaste House is for small to medium group retreats with comfortable facilities for meeting in the large living room, huge decks and lawns by the creek. For large groups, Stewart Mineral Springs, (five minute walk) provides overflow lodging. All of Flowing Waters can be reserved with the smaller charming cottages, Kuan Yin Cottage and Ananda A frame.
For Meals, use the fully equipped kitchens in Namaste, Kuan Yin and Ananda. Or ask us about catered meals. Two complete natural food stores are in the town of Mt. Shasta (15 minutes). An internet café and grocery stores are in Weed (10 minutes).
As well as relaxing by the waters, we can arrange for healing massage on site (Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue, etc.). Just up the road, Stewart Springs offers rich mineral baths and a Saturday Sweat Lodge led by local Native Americans.

We wish to support you and your group. Ask us about a sample budget for group leaders. Please note there is no smoking, alcohol nor recreational drugs and we practice loving care of the Earth asking our guests to “reduce, reuse, recycle”.

Meditation and Healing Retreats:
Flowing Waters Retreat is very conducive to smaller group retreats for meditation and mindfulness practice, healing and contemplation. The large outdoor decks and lawns by the waters as well as the large living room are lovely spaces for inspirational talks and practice. The decks are also perfect for outdoor movement. The quiet ponds, paths, sacred forest spaces, and national forest land support solo practice. There is no need for cars.
