May Christmas bring you Joy and great Hope for the Coming New Year!

As much as we wish that we could welcome you again and share our life of Silence and Stillness, we have reassessed the situation and realize that for the safety and health of our guests it is best to remain closed until further notice.  Sonoma remains a high risk area for Covid-19 and this has not improved as hoped.

For us this is a hardship and we miss sharing this place with each of you, but for now we will continue our vocation of prayer and silence trusting in God’s care that all will be well.  We are praying that a time of healing comes soon and look forward to the day when we can welcome you once again.

  Since we are given the gift of Solitude may we  all  find ways to Tend our heart during this Crisis

Your patience, prayers and support have been a great blessing this year and we are deeply thankful and keep you always in our prayer.



Sky Farm Hermitage is an ideal setting for anyone seeking a retreat in silence and solitude in a quiet and sacred environment. This secluded place in the hills of Sonoma is quiet yet full of birdsong. Here the Spirit teaches the heart through silence. We hope that time spent here will nourish the call to contemplation that echoes deep in the cave of every human heart.
