Southern Dharma Retreat Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational center that offers affordable, teacher-led retreats representing a variety of spiritual traditions with a unifying thread of meditation, contemplation, and silence. The center provides a comfortable gathering place in a safe and secluded mountain environment removed from the distractions of everyday life. It cultivates an atmosphere of quiet reflection where one can nurture a sense of peace and uncover truths within the heart.
Southern Dharma is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, about one hour northwest of Asheville by car. It is nestled in a secluded hollow on 15 acres within a 135-acre preserve of privately owned forest land adjacent to the Pisgah National Forest. Although its mailing address is Hot Springs, SDRC is actually located in a hollow on Hap Mountain in the small community of Spring Creek. The center is easily accessible by car, and can provide or arrange transportation to and from Asheville Airport for those traveling to retreats by air.
