    Men meditating at Hidden Valley

    At the Hidden Valley Ashram Center, men who are students of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons will find an environment conducive to God-centered living in the tranquil beauty of the ashram and surrounding hills.

    Among the oak covered hills, secluded trails beckon. Discover striking rock formations and expansive views around the next corner. Find your own ideal spot for meditation, relaxing and enjoying God’s beauty.

    Experience group meditations, inspirational classes, satsangas, service, recreation, fellowship, spiritual counseling, and time for solitude and reflection.

    The ashram also features a swimming pool, a gym, and a library.
