Personal Solitary Retreats

Lotus Garden is closed for the month of January 2018 for the Winter Resident Retreat. No personal retreats will be available during this time, although you may contact the office to schedule a retreat for anytime after January 31st.

Solitary retreats offer an opportunity for practitioners to pursue their practices in solitude. Lotus Garden offers year-round opportunities for personal solitary retreats.

A solitary retreat traditionally consists of either four or six practice sessions per day. Solitary retreatants must bring their own shrine materials and set up their own shrines.

We have private rooms available for retreats, with shared bath, available for $55 per night. Other practical details may be arranged when scheduling your retreat.

Retreat and Practice Support

All retreatants at Lotus Garden will have the support of one of our lopöns (senior teachers) or our drupön (retreat master). These individuals have been appointed by Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche.
