LET US HOST

YOUR RETREAT

GROUPS, TRAININGS & CORPORATE RETREATS

Perched atop a beautifully wooded hillside on 90 acres deep in the Catskills—and just 90 miles north of New York City—the Dharmakaya Center provides an idyllic setting for your retreat. We are equally known for our gracious hospitality (and gourmet vegetarian meals) and our professional approach to managing the retreat experience. With a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces in which to meditate, move, share—or simply relax—we provide the canvas for your gathering, freeing you to concentrate on your program.

          Our two residence halls offer a simple, peaceful environment that supports the retreat experience. Each of our carefully-appointed rooms have comfortable double beds and may be shared by couples in committed relationships. To maintain an atmosphere of calm, the rooms do not have the distractions of televisions, telephones or internet access.

          • Junior Suites (5): In addition to the amenities of a private room, these large rooms have en suite baths, terraces or balconies, and refrigerators.
