What is a retreat?
“A period of time during which we impose various restrictions on our actions of body, speech, and mind so as to be able to concentrate more fully on a particular spiritual practice”

Excerpt From
Meaningful to Behold
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Our six annual international retreats provide a very special opportunity for us to create a deep and lasting change in our mind by focusing on specific practices for a length of time, whether it be one week, three weeks or six weeks. Throughout the year we can take some time to retreat from our normal busy daily life and make meaningful progress along our spiritual path.
