Attending a day-long or weekend program or group retreat helps us refresh and rejuvenate. Training our mind to be calm, revitalizing our body through time in nature, opening to our natural wisdom, and learning ways to care for others are all excellent ways to energize both mind and body.
Please find below the current available programs. Check this page often for updates. We offer programs hosted at MRC as well as online programs taught by qualified teachers of Nalandabodhi International.

Online Open Retreat
October 9-11, 2021
Milarepa was a great 12th-century Tibetan meditation master. He attained vast wisdom through his many years in mountain retreat, and composed many songs expressing his realization. These songs have been passed down through the generations and are as relevant today as they were centuries ago.
In this online program, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, together with Lama Rabten Tshering and Mitra Tyler Dewar, will explore how the timeless wisdom treasure of Milarepa applies to us today. This is an unrestricted program. All are welcome!
