Jennifer Robinson

Jennifer Robinson is the founder of San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center, which opened in the summer of 2015. Jennifer was in a rear-end automobile accident in the fall of 2014 which pushed her to start the center. It was a wake-up call for her, waking her up with a deep knowing of the preciousness of life itself. The automobile accident left the vehicle she was driving in with a busted fuel tank and according to an MRI, left Jennifer with moderate foraminal stenosis in the neck area which she believes is healing through the power of love! She believes all healing comes from God.

Memo Ozdogan

From his early twenties, Memo has had a great passion and personal interest in exploring western and eastern spirituality and philosophy in order to see and understand different approaches towards the subject of living. He has delved into the original teachings of the Buddha, J.Krishnamurti, Rumi, ancient Greek philosophy, Zen, the Tao, ancient forms of spirituality, and new age spirituality.

"Thank You"

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jennifer and Memo immediately and whisked away on a brisk neighborhood walk, after having dropped off our bags in our room. Our room was incredibly spacious and fully functional -- full kitchen, full living room, full bedroom. Even for being in such a woodland fantasy, the room was perfectly neat and clean for our entire stay.

During the workshops, Jennifer's bright and cheerful way of introducing us to such informed topics as psychometry, psychic/mediumship work and spiritual healing made learning easy as well as moving. Although Memo's spirit was always calming and peaceful, his spiritual discussions were passionate and spirited in a way that inspired intelligent discussion. Connie, our yoga teacher was always a delight and a wonderful teacher. By far the most surprising, the vegan food blew us away. Each dish prepared by Elizabeth and the wonderful volunteers was better than the next. In fact, Elizabeth and her spirit, along with the volunteers, M.J., Brian and Nell, simply made the retreat more enjoyable in every moment and it felt like they were all meant to be there for a reason.

"Nothing close to a "yoga and meditation" retreat"

Some of the vegan dishes were good, Jennifer's hospitality and intent were in the right place, the two other guests who participated.

" Memo is amazing and well spoken"

Jennifer and Memo probably would not appreciate me saying this, but there is NO meat in that house. This was my first time at any kind of spiritual retreat. I have never done yoga, been spiritual, talked about love or gone a day without eating some sort of meat. Coming to this place I was a bit apprehensive, but I have to say Jennifer and Memo and the volunteers were amazing. I cant praise them enough. The food had zero meat in it..I mean no meat at all and was freaking good. Jennifer sent me the recipes and I started making one of the salads with my steaks..That combined with a scotch are a good combination. The yoga was amazing. The instructor has such a nice ass..very cute girl! The gardener is a down to earth guy who takes pride in his work. Memo was eloquent, understanding and insightful. I enjoyed the long walks, deep conversations and overall spiritual guidance. There was a beer in the apartment and I was going to drink it but decided against it. the place is nice, its not ritzy or classy, but it is a great place to go heal from stress, meet like minded people, go for long walks and self reflect. The bonfire night was amazing and the staff was overall wondeful. The only thing that could top this off is if they had scotch and cigars..Cheers!!!

I came for a spiritual yoga retreat and had a lovely time. The atmosphere is kind and loving, and the people are more so. Everyone is beyond caring and understanding and always up for a good discussion. The surrounding area is gorgeous for walking, but you might be like me and find all the sanctuary you needed in the property lines. I'm a picky camper (read: I don't camp) and the area was relaxing, peaceful and easy to sleep and wake up in. Also, the food is absolutely amazing no matter your normal dietary preferences.

I visited San Diego spiritual retreat in June for a weekend yoga retreat. I went by myself and was a little nervous about it as I had never done anything like that before. I needn't have been. Jennifer and Memo were wonderful and very welcoming. I felt relaxed and at ease immediately. Memo showed me to the little house I was staying in. It was really cute surrounded by trees very secluded in the forest. The best part was the hot tub which was amazing to relax in at night and look at the stars. We made vision boards and talked the first evening. Jennifer made some Amazing vegan food which I enjoyed very much. Next morning I was up early for a delicious fresh vegetable juice and an early yoga class. It was very nice outside doing yoga looking at the trees and hearing the animals. Very peaceful. Afterwards we had a nice breakfast and Memo and I went hiking. We went up to Volcan Mountain which has great views at the top of the hill.

That afternoon when I got back I had my first reiki session with Flavia a Brazilian girl living there at the time. She was also fabulous. I had never had reiki before and wasn't really sure what to expect. She explained everything to me and I felt very relaxed during and after the session.

I was quite stressed out with work and personal issues before going on this retreat and it was exactly what I needed. A few days away from the city in the peace and quiet to relax. I felt amazing after the session.

I then did some deep breathing and meditation with Jennifer which was also amazing. The weekend away really gave me time to relax and think about things. Jennifer, memo and Flavia were all lovely to talk to and very helpful. We talked about many of my problems and they gave some great advice and helped me a lot! I cannot recommend this place enough! Five stars! You absolutely have to go and visit. I've been back twice since and I now feel like that is my happy place! Anytime I'm feeling stressed out or in need of a break its where I will go!
