Testimonials

We booked Dharma college last minute when another location couldn’t provide the expected level of quality for our event. They communicated with us easily and quickly to reserve the space. The space itself is beautiful and transmits a quiet and tranquility that was deeply beneficial to our workshop participants. The color and the natural lighting combined to make the perfect retreat. Thanks!
-Jeff Lieberman

I can't recommend Dharma College enough! The staff was beyond considerate of our needs. The building is beautiful and a lot of care was given to the design and energy of the place. It made a world of difference for the participants.
-Joe Hudson, Founder, and Managing Director
Tide Turners Workshop

Dharma College was a great place for our workshop. The space had a rare feeling of being peaceful, inviting, and organized. The staff truly embody a spirit of service and kindness.
-Peter Bonanno, Director of Program Development Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute

I just attended a workshop at Dharma College. At first, I was deeply moved by the feeling inside the building. You can feel the wisdom energy in all the rooms. I was also impressed by how all the details have been thoroughly thought through coffee, tea and water in all the right places, a meditation room, incredibly comfortable chairs, easily movable desks. And finally, aesthetically it is a joy: a beautiful well maintained old building with high ceilings, lots of natural light, and comfortable, attractive furniture. This is an oasis in the middle of Berkeley!!!!
