Pleasant Valley Sanctuary is located on a secluded and truly charming stretch of the Sierra Nevada foothills that line the Yuba river canyon in Northern California. The true beauty of this place is the setting that it provides for developing a deeper spiritual practice, away from the day to day patterns that can so often keep us habit-bound. There are a number of sacred spaces on-site, including the main temple and a private cave, that carry a very deep vibration from many hours of intense meditation over the years. These spaces are a huge support for meditators at any level.


Meals and Pleasant Valley Sanctuary are lovingly prepared and delicious, consisting largely of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, carried from the garden to the kitchen. The meal plan is influenced by Ayurvedic principles and we can accommodate most any special dietary need. Guests are well fed with food full of life force that is simple and easy to digest.
