The Three Yana retreat will cover the historical and contemplative development of Buddhism involving a combination of meditation practice and daily teachings. During each section there will be noble silence and six hours of practice per day as well as two hours of teachings by Lama Tsultrim and invited guest teachers. An optional oral exam will be given at the end of each yana. Lodging and meals between each section of the retreat are included.

Each Yana is also available as a separate retreat. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate children on the land during this retreat.
