The Creative Spirit retreat yacht is owned by Integrative Spirituality a non profit non denominational spiritual organization (integrativespirituality.org). It has been used for both guided and self-directed personal retreats and spiritual retreats for our staff and both members and non members the last 5 years. In addition to our guided retreats, the yacht is open for retreat rentals and self directed spiritual retreats to individuals or small groups from all denominations. We have just recently opened our previously members and staff only floating retreat center to public retreat rentals and San Francisco visits to assist us with meeting our mission budget in the economic downturn.

More About Our Unique Retreat Yacht
The yacht is filled with omni-denominational spiritual art and a sanctuary meditation space. Our end-of-the-dock location is perfect for self-directed contemplative solitude, reading or study. It has been used repeatedly for all kinds of retreats focused on spiritual,emotional or physical healing. You can even stay with us and attend retreats or event at other spiritual centers in the area! Some people just stay with us while visiting the city because the retreat space supports their existing spiritual practice while they are traveling.
Our retreat yacht is truly one of the most unique and healing retreat centers in all of the world and it it is on the water in one of the most exciting spiritual pioneering cities anywhere. Many individuals who rent our yacht do so to combine a personal self-directed retreat with a vacation and visits to the many other special spiritual centers in the SF bay area.
The Creative Spirit yacht is docked in one of the best weather areas in all of San Francisco --- a narrow micro climate “Rivera” sunbelt in Sausalito. If you have been to the south of France or Europe, you will know why its called the "Rivera of San Francisco". When you look out the yacht's windows for the first time during your self guided retreat, you will see breathtaking 360 degree bay views and views of the surrounding multi-million dollar estates. (180 degrees of views are completely open and unobstructed across the full SF bay because we are the last yacht on a modern, safe well lit dock.)
This large yacht is a uniquely healing and artful environment away from the stressful road noises of SF. Experiencing the spectacular bay sunsets and sunrises, tidal rhythms, the many birds and seals that regularly frequent the area near the 62 foot yacht as well as the smell of the ocean only adds to the romance of this memory-for-a-lifetime retreat experience.
When you decide to take a break from your personal retreat, the Creative Spirit the yacht is a 13 minute car ride to the heart of the city, a 5 minute walk to the city bus system and a 15 minute walk to the famous San Francisco bay ferries, which also can take you to the city or the beautiful bay islands.
The yacht is docked in the SF bay area city of Sausalito one of the most tourist visited attractions in the bay area. There are first class restaurants and stores in walking distance from the dock. (We strongly recommend that you go to the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce web page and check out amazing photos of Sausalito and the "must see" short video on its many attractions on the top left hand side of this page. In the video you will see just how close you are to the heart of San Francisco.
In addition to the yacht's spiritual peacefulness and unbelievable natural surroundings there is quite a literary history in the area within several hundred yards of the yacht. Aldous Huxley the author of 1984 and Brave New World died nearby in his wife’s arms . Also two additional curiosities are; Carl Jung the world-renowned psychologist wrote a substantial part of the famous book, Man and His Symbols' here. The Beat Poet Allen Ginsberg had his famous floating pyramidal home just a stone throw away. Some very interesting people over the years have discovered the creative and healing Rivera like charm and lived in Sausalito to just name a few.
Even if you have never stayed on a large yacht before for a self directed retreat, it is easy. In many ways it is much like staying at a land-based spiritual center. The yacht’s experienced chief steward not only checks you in and out, but also explains everything that you will need to know for your visit. They are also available during your stay by phone to answer questions about the yacht’s visit-related features, the local culture and attractions or, fix any rare problems should they come up.
