  • Meditative Beauty and Cosmic Order

    When I went to the Moon…the presence of divinity became almost palpable and I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes. The knowledge came to me directly—noetically. It was knowledge gained through subjective awareness.
    – Edgar Mitchell

  • Connect with Spirit

    Create your own sacred rhythm by sitting in silence, walking our labyrinth, or communing with nature.

  • Communion with Nature

    The sacred energy of the land, once inhabited by the Miwok Indians, can be felt as you gaze out over rolling hills and soaring vistas, observe foraging deer, listen to the mating songs of wild turkeys, or meditate in one of the fragrant, natural cathedrals canopied by ancient coast live oaks, buckeye, and bay trees.

    Jean Houston has held retreats at EarthRise for many years. In this 3 minute video she shares why she is passionate about EarthRise and IONS.

From our guests...
  • There are no words to describe how amazing this past weekend was...Everything was splendid, and the energy and enthusiasm with which you all made our event so spectacular was VERY apparent.

    There is a Hebrew word "Dayenu," often said at Passover, which translates loosely to "It would have been enough." My mother said this to me over the weekend, and I think it rings true. "Had EarthRise offered only it's amazing natural beauty, Dayenu!" Our wedding would have been fantastic with only the gorgeous setting of the EarthRise property.... but you all made it so much more.

    —All our best, Jonah & Julia
     



    This is an awesome facility – the energetics are balanced and so supportive of the work we embraced. The food is exquisite and personnel supportive and very service oriented. Thank you/Mahalo.
