Welcome to Wonderwell Mountain Refuge

Wonderwell Mountain Refuge is a meditation and retreat center in Springfield, New Hampshire. We host a variety of retreats and programs oriented towards teaching practices of the Buddhist tradition, deepening personal practice, and integrating meditation into daily life.

Please Note: Wonderwell is closed this winter for major renovations and code compliance improvements. We will reopen on April 21, 2017 for retreats, and our first Dharma Sunday will be April 30, 2017. While we are closed, Monday Night Meditation sessions are happening on the 1st and 3rd Mondays each month from 6:30-8:00 pm at 31 River Road in Sunapee (Healing Arts Yoga studio).

Wonderwell: The Next 100 Years

We are excited to launch the final two phases of our major renovation project. This will bring our beloved retreat center into full fire, food safety, and ADA accommodation code compliance, while upgrading energy efficient and functionality.

Watch the video, Wonderwell: A Legacy of Wisdom and Compassion, to learn more about the project as well as a bit of our inspiring history. We hope to be able to offer a place of peace and refuge for generations to come. Please consider joining us to make this vision a reality.
