Your home away from home…
the magical
GURU SHASTA

Guru Shasta was channeled through our dear friend Stephen Baldonado one summer afternoon while he was visiting Mount Shasta. Stephen had been hiking and meditating on the mountain and, in a flash, it became clear to him that it was time to create a space for the healing of the human consciousness. Stephen was called to take his gifts as a designer and healer and blend them into ONE through the creation of a truly sacred space - a healing retreat center,

GURU SHASTA
GURU was established and set with the intention of helping anyone drawn to Shasta to uncover their own inner wisdom, highest-self… it is a safe and sacred space to connect with GURU within.  GURU lives within all of us, though oftentimes it can take retreat to hear it and acknowledge it. Let Shasta be your container for personal advancement and spiritual growth, let GURU SHASTA be your home away from home.

Pure Elements
Fresh air, sunshine, forest and natural springs abound in the area.  Connecting with the purity of the natural elements is a true gift and miracle, and one that nourishes your soul so that you are able to live fully in your gift, your spirit, and your calling.  Let nature be your greatest teacher. GURU SHASTA is nestled within the lush landscape of 7+ acres of pristine beauty. The grounds and facilities are the perfect combination of comfort and serenity.

Questions + Suggestions:

Were is Mt. Shasta?

 

Getting there:
From LA:

Driving: If you decide to drive you will be taking the 5 freeway all the way to the top of the state, Google maps will tell you that it takes 9 hours, but we suggest to allow 10-11 hours so you can make stops and enjoy the trip.  

Flying: If you choose to fly there are three airports in the region: Medford Oregon, Redding California, or Sacramento. There tend to be the most flight options and best prices to fly to Sacramento. From there, you would rent a car and drive for 3 hours. Redding is only 1 hour away, and Medford is 1.5 hours away. Both Redding and Medford have more limited flights, Sacramento has dozens of flights a day.

**There is now a direct flight on United from LA to Redding once per day **
As of 4/10 flights are available starting at just $280
Here are the flights we recommend:
