MOUNT SHASTA | ACCOMMODATIONS
A retreat or vacation setting, the City of Mt. Shasta is nestled at the foot of alluring Mount Shasta. At 14,162 feet, Mount Shasta is the second highest volcano in the United States and a major peak of the Cascade range. Mt. Shasta is surrounded by divine beauty, spectacular mountain vistas and crystal clear alpine lakes. Spiritual seekers, healers, alternative health practitioners, environmentalists and outdoor enthusiasts are all drawn to Mt. Shasta because of its engaging and pure beauty. This is a nonresidential course. However, there are many hotels, motels, and inns within the downtown area. Past VajraPani graduates are also open to renting rooms in their homes to Teacher Training attenndees. In warmer weather, several campgrounds can be used only a few minutes drive from town.
