"Having two decades of experience facilitating wintertime Dark retreats, we began offering them year around in August of 2022. We believe Dark retreats are an important household utility, a place to enhance uninhibited creativity with uninterrupted self exploration and a great space for self-care. We welcome you to explore the luxury of the Dark as an ultimate vacation via your inner world."
Viviana and Finnpo
We offer complete darkness in our retreat rooms which are enhanced to further your experience.
Our retreats allow you to disconnect from the outside world and focus on your own inner wisdom.
A healthy and balanced diet is one of the cornerstones of our dark retreat campus.
Our retreat center is set in an idyllic rainforest, surrounded by natural and serene beauty and only 13.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

The Cavern is a larger room and has a queen size bed. It is nestled in the building.
