    Retreats with Peter Brown



    These retreats are offered to experienced aspirants who are willing to explore Peter's teachings in a focused manner, and will be presented from a perspective of mature purity and subtlety, with minimal remedial explanation. To this end Peter asks you to review the Open Doorway web site, and have a background understanding of fundamental “non-dual” traditions including Advaita, Dzogchen, and Kashmir Shaivism. He encourages you to contact him directly to explore the practicality of your participation.






    Joshua Tree Retreat Center, Joshua Tree, CA

    Thursday June 22 - Monday June 26, 2017


    Four-night, immersive residential retreat, in the subtle energy yoga of the Radiant Presence that constitutes your being, your experience—through means of experiential investigation, teaching, discussion, and transmission.



    The Joshua Tree Retreat Center is the oldest and largest retreat center in the Western United States; a unique architectural landmark on a sacred site. The JTRC is located approximately 2 hours from Los Angeles. The high desert (3000 ft) locale boasts wonderfully cool evenings even during the warmest of seasons. The Joshua Tree National Park is only 6 miles away, and aside from the Center’s own hiking trails, nearby is a unique and beautiful marshland with additional hiking just minutes away. Joshua Tree Retreat Center housing is simple and comfortable with heating and air in all rooms (single or double occupancy). Many of the residential cottages and meeting rooms were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his son. Accommodations are all within easy walking distance to classrooms and dining. To help encourage your relaxation, rooms do not have televisions or phones. WiFi is available in most locations. See www.jtrcc.org
