Retreat Cabins

Our Retreat Cabins

“The retreat cabins are the heart and soul of Tara Mandala. Mountain retreat brings to fruition the guidance of the teacher and gives us unshakable confidence in our practice.”
C.E., Teacher and Mother

“I know it’s time for a solo cabin retreat at Tara Mandala when the feeling of overwhelm is a constant companion. Slowly the world of deadlines and decisions drops away as I settle into my cozy confines, feeling the resonance of those who have come before, knowing the sought-after wisdom is here, awaiting my arrival on the cushion.”
S.G., Ergonomist

Retreat cabins at Tara Mandala provide a rare and precious opportunity to be completely secluded and alone in a remote mountain setting. Here you are free to maintain intensive practice and connect with your innermost being. The retreat cabins have been created through the loving kindness, generosity, and hard labor of many people.

Currently we have three cabins: Karuna, Ratna, and Two Trees.  All of our cabins are well suited for year-round practice, as they are completely insulated and have small wood-burning stoves.

Cabins are available for retreats for a minimum of three nights to 3+ years. For longer retreats, we recommend and, in some cases, require the permission of a teacher. Rates are based on length of retreat. Retreat fees cover cabin rental, fuel (wood and propane), retreatant care (weekly shopping for retreats of more than one week in length), and various supplies. Food is not provided.

Arrival and departure days are Mondays and Fridays.

Minimum stay: 3 nights over a weekend or 7 nights during winter and severe mud in early Spring.

Fees include grocery shopping if staying longer than one week.

Cost:

  • 3-5 nights…………………………………………………………….……$95/night
  • 7 nights to one month…………………………………………………….$65/night
  • One month thru 6 months………………………………………………..$950/month
  • 6 months to one year……………………………………………………..$800/month

All retreat cabins are fully in use thru September 2019. They will become available again in October 2019. If you need to do a retreat sooner than October 2019, consider a solitary retreat in Prajna Residence Hall as an alternative.
