As part of our Teacher Training Program(TTP), students engage in various retreats throughout the year in order to deepen their understanding and experience of meditation. These retreats are held for the TTP students in order to fulfill their commitments of the program, but everyone is welcome to participate. Some explanation will be offered at the introductory session on the first day of the retreat, but then the rest of the sessions will be un-guided. Therefore it is necessary to attend the introduction before attending the other sessions if you have not done these retreats before.

There are four traditional retreat practices called “The Four Great Preliminary Guides”:

Refuge Retreat

Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat

Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

In addition to these, as part of the TTP there are also two Lamrim Retreats held each year as well as a Highest Yoga Tantra Retreat in January.
