Dwell in Peace has been a dream that has taken us years to establish. We found the land we had been praying and waiting for back in 2002. Since 2011 our home has been used by several churches and ministries for retreats, strategic planning meetings and events. Through the years we have seen the need for a place of retreat in the heart of the city. Our property is located on the top of Mt. Soledad in Pacific Beach. Easy access to the beach, parks and the airport.
We launched offering personal retreats and Christian spiritual direction in 2017. We offer individual personal retreats as well as Missionary preparation, on the field, and re-entry support.
To schedule your retreat or to ask questions-
Overnight individual retreats from 1 to 14 days. Spiritual direction, missionary re-entry, and retreat planning are available if desired during your retreat.
Day Retreats for individuals or teams up to 20 people. Retreats can be planned by us if desired, or come with your own plans.
"If you are looking for a place to get away for peace and solitude, this is your place. The view from the top of Mount Soledad is spectacular, soothing, and inspirational. Mary Linam is not only a wonderful host, but she is very skilled in conducting spiritual formation sessions and retreats, helping missionaries prepare for service in the field and helping them reenter, and leading solitude retreats. I’ve worked with Mary for over 10 years and she is one of the most capable people I know. You will love spending time at this awesome facility, and leave with true fullness, vision, and purpose."
Darrel Larson- Newbreak Church, International Outreach Pastor
"Dwell in Peace provides that beautiful space needed to draw away and meet with the Lord while still in the city. I've been able to bless our missionaries with a place to retreat and simply be. I would highly recommend it for the missionary or simply for yourself to get away!"
Melissa-Missionary Care Specialist
"My youth ministry team went to Dwell in Peace last year for a short retreat. Over a year later we're still talking about how refreshing and relaxing our time was there. It's a sacred space that is incredibly welcoming and picturesque. The food was really good, so good! And they made you feel right at home with their hospitality and their encouraging presence."
Matt Fogle- Youth Pastor
"Mary and Jeff certainly have the gift of hospitality, and are caring, sensitive and upstanding in character. Their beautiful, contemporary home and grounds provides a wonderful peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet is only minutes to the beach, Mission Bay, excellent restaurants and shops. I highly recommend you consider staying with them."
