Welcome to Sevenoaks Retreat Center

Preserved and pristine nature provides an ideal setting for workshops, meetings, group retreats, and training sessions for public and private organizations, religious groups and families. We have hosted mindfulness and yoga gatherings, church groups, reunions of friends and families, and many others who have enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate, meditate, share insights, contemplate, and commune with all the Earth’s richness and beauty.

Sevenoaks: An ideal location for your group to meet, celebrate, learn, contemplate or renew!


Mountains from Oak HouseNestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, close to Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, Sevenoaks has 120 acres of forest and meadow, beautiful gardens and spacious lawns, the perfect setting for conferences and groups who wish to raise their level of consciousness and to renew their sense of balance and harmony.

Sevenoaks offers the opportunity to meditate, engage in yoga and dance, and to study sustainable living within the context of a demanding cosmos. Scholars, like-minded individuals, men’s groups, women’s groups, seekers of self-knowledge – all have found Sevenoaks a welcoming retreat from everyday life.

Our staff is attuned to the particular needs of those whose spiritual quest brings them to Sevenoaks. Their hospitality and sensitivity to the spiritual dimension of Sevenoaks as a place of learning provide sustenance to the body and nurturing of the soul.
