We are happy to announce that the Prajña Residence Hall will be open for personal retreats during the above dates, pending availability around group retreats. In cases of smaller group retreats, rooms may remain available. This is a great opportunity to do a retreat in a supported and comfortable environment. Retreatants will be welcome at morning practice, evening Protector’s practice, and Tsog (ritual feasts) or may choose solo practice.

You will have your own spacious room large enough for prostrations and yoga. Each room has a sink with a granite countertop and wood floors with non-toxic natural finishes. There are shared baths and toilets on each floor.
