Companions on the Inner Way

Southern California Companions on the Inner Way is held at the beautiful Serra Retreat Center overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, CA in March.  Northern Companions retreat is offered in Lake Tahoe, NV in August.   Click here for information about the next upcoming retreat.

Companions is a five-day guided retreat grounded in the Christian Tradition. By honoring body, mind and soul, companions are invited to the inner journey with the Spirit. Many of our church members have attended Companions retreats and have found them to be an inspiring and faith-deepening experience.
