About Four Springs

oakleafFour Springs has operated as a retreat since 1956. Established by the founders of the Guild for Psychological Studies, Elizabeth Boyden Howes, Sheila Moon and Luella Sibbald, it has been home to retreats and seminars in religion and psychology for over fifty years. Four Springs has become a sacred place to generations of people whose inner work has helped shape Four Springs and has been nourished by it.

Four Springs is secluded at the end of Sheveland Road on 280 acres of woods in the foothills north of Mount Saint Helena, in southern Lake County. Our clear, refreshing water comes from natural springs on the retreat.

The lodge, cabins, art and meditation buildings, library and seminar room, together with pool, grape arbor, meadows and trails create a sanctuary that is removed from daily distractions.

Four Springs offers nourishment to the soul, and the space and time to discern inner possibilities that otherwise go unnoticed.

We welcome your discovery of this remarkable place, known by people around the world as an inspirational setting for reflection, study and personal transformation.
