PERSONAL RETREAT

PERSONAL RETREAT

REST & RENEWAL

Step away from the rush of daily life to reconnect with yourself in an idyllic natural setting. Meditate in Milarepa Hall, in the privacy of your room, or on a rock outside. Spend afternoons in the library. Hike a nearby mountain trail. Contemplate the stars while sitting by the fire pit. Just be.

BOOK YOUR RETREAT

"I really felt a peace—a sense of calmness and a deep connection to my spirit and the universe... "

DESIGN YOUR RETREAT

We offer the flexibility to design your own personal retreat—whether a time of simple quiet contemplation, a few extra days of deeper retreat at the beginning or end of a program, or intensive work on a specific practice. If you want, you can meet with a resident lama to discuss your personal retreat goals and design your practice schedule. Or simply choose as the days unfold, leaving everyday pressures behind as you find the time and space and peace you crave—a precious opportunity to restore yourself.

You are welcome to join the Center’s morning salutations and meditation and our Tuesday and Sunday Meditation programs. However, you must purchase a ticket to attend any ticketed teachings, programs or other events. Please note that if your retreat overlaps with a scheduled program, your access to the Meditation Hall may be limited; check our calendar for potential conflicts.

EAT WELL

While this is a time to nourish yourself, it is also a time to nourish your body. You will enjoy delicious vegetarian food, eating each meal with our resident lamas, volunteers and staff.

THE POWER OF A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP

Settle into a beautifully appointed room, with all the requisite comforts—and no extraneous distractions—creating a perfect atmosphere for peaceful contemplation.

SOLITARY RETREATS FOR ADVANCED DHARMA STUDENTS

Solitary retreats provide unparalleled opportunities for intensive work in specific practices guided by a teacher. Such retreats can help accelerate one’s practice, allowing retreatants to reach far greater depths. The Center welcomes advanced dharma students on solitary retreat with prior permission from the Center’s teachers. Solitary retreatants must have an established shamatha practice, the patience to practice and a strong motivation. Ideally, retreatants should have completed the Discovering the Dharma™ cycle.
