Practitioner in Residence (PIR) Program
Practitioner in Residence (PIR) Program – Buddhist Study, Practice, and Community
The Practitioners In Residence (PIR) Program is an opportunity for experienced Buddhist Vajrayana practitioners to immerse in a residential community centered on daily practice and study at Tara Mandala Retreat Center, situated in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado.
If you are a Vajrayana practitioner, this retreat-like experience will allow you to set down the concerns of worldly life and direct your energy towards intensive study and practice for a minimum of three months. An extended application and assessment would be required in order to extend your stay to up to six months.
We have space for up to nine individuals to participate in this program. PIR participants would live on the first floor of Prajna Residence Hall in individual rooms with shared bath facilities.
The exact program start date will be determined based on the schedules of the accepted applicants after discussion with each person. We envision this program starting in December 2020 or January 2021.
