Geneen Roth Retreats

"At the retreat, something you said hit me like a shot and BOOM! In that moment, everything changed. The food and the restriction and the torture ended for me. Food contains no charge for me. It seems, even now, almost impossible. But it is the truth.” - Pattie Gilmore

During the retreat, you will learn a whole new way to relate to food — and explore the foundation upon which you build your life and your relationships.

“Coming to the retreat was the most life altering experience of my life -- second only to childbirth."


If you will be traveling from a distance, the closest airports are San Francisco International (SFO ) and San Jose International (SJC). When making flight arrangements, allow:

  • San Jose International (SJC) --  1.5 hours travel time
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO) -- 2 hours travel time

Shuttle Service -- To make it easier to get to Mount Madonna Center, shuttle van service will be offered, running several times during the day, from both the San Francisco and San Jose airports only.  To use the shuttle service, you must arrive on November 5th no later than 2:00 pm.  For your departure on November 10th, flights should be scheduled to depart 3:30 pm or later to allow sufficient time for the shuttle service to transport you from the retreat center to the airports.

Shuttle service will be arranged by our retreat manager.  The shuttle rate is $60 one way/$120 round trip.  NOTE: Scheduling arrivals outside the recommended arrival/departure times will result in higher shuttle fees.

Non-refundable flights should not be made without confirmation of your place at the retreat.
