Annual Retreat

The Annual Retreat, first held in Baltimore beginning in 1997 and then in Lotus Garden since 2003, has been an intensive three-week long practice and study retreat where students from across the globe gather to receive teachings from Her Eminence Jets√ľn Khandro Rinpoche. Over the eleven years since it inception, the Annual Retreat has been a precious opportunity for practitioners to gather together and interact with each other as a buddhist sangha and deepen their practice and study of various levels of Buddhism.
