As many of you know we lost our beautiful center of peaceful silence, Silent Stay, just 4 weeks ago !! The destruction was and is tragic on many levels, however, the beauty that has revealed itself everyday since, has been the enduring love of the community....This IS who WE are. This awareness is the supportive bridge that is holding all of us. Holding us from one day to the next, from one event to the next, from one breath to the next. What WE are IS the peace, WE are the love, WE ~ all of us ~ hold this simple beauty for ourselves, our loved ones, our community and for the all and everything !!! Please feel this with us !!!
The one thing we lost in the fire, more important than anything else were all the handwritten testimonials from the hundreds of guests that made a pilgrimage here. They made the pilgrimage to Silent Stay as a metaphor for making a pilgrimage to their heart. And each person in their own way felt that.
Your Testimonial matters: Please help us recreate the testimonials. You can share handwritten testimonials here (please include a photo if you have one). And or you can make a simple 30 second youtube video that we can collect and share..... together as we send the peace out silently from our heart we can send it out verbally for everyone to read, hear, feel, integrate and receive.
Please help us rebuild. Tax deductible donations here: Support Fund
This IS the treasure, the love we can touch and feel together. It is under everything, inside of everything and supporting everything.... the human steps are hard but become grace when we receive the love !!!!
We receive your love...

Unplug and enjoy receiving peace and quiet. Guided meditation, the beauty in nature, the simplicity of just being, touches the sacred inside of us.
These are precious days free from our daily story. In the quiet we open to the peace that is in our hearts.
The gift of silence is having nothing to do, nothing to say, having time to enjoy solitude, gentleness, a quiet mind.
A few days of simple peace and we feel new again, more in touch with our essence. The silence is the doorway into our own spirituality, truth, wisdom.
Feel the presence of peace all around you and deep inside of you. Peace is the ongoing steady reality that exists throughout all time. Everything else is changing. Each of us can be an anchor of peace in the world.
We are located In the hills of Solano County in Northern California. We are one hour & 15 minutes Northeast of San Francisco, 45 minutes from Napa and easily accessible from Sacramento as well as Los Angeles.

Sharing the Experience
My time at Silent Stay has changed my life. I'm more productive at work, I'm more tolerant and in general I have a more peaceful outlook on life. I wish to thank you all for helping me get there. I look forward to returning to continue my journey. Julie
