Seven Circles Retreat Center is a peaceful space for renewal in the California Sierra Foothills on 24 acres of oak and manzanita forest, close to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. We honor all faiths and spiritual paths, and are dedicated to events and groups that strive for harmony, wisdom and humanity, all in the midst of the mountains.
