Retreats & Events - MRC Lodge & Cabins

Relax. Let Go. Rejuvenate.


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.

Songs of Milarepa

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!

The Dharma of Loss, Forgiveness & Creativity


November 3–5, 2023

In this time of heightened world conflict and natural disasters, we are more than ever aware of suffering - on both the global scale and at a personal level. In this workshop Mitra Mark will lead us in an exploration of how the Buddhist teachings can help us to open our hearts and soften into our experience of loss, and the suffering that holding onto old emotional wounds brings, with creativity, resilience, and kindness.

This program is open to all and will be offered onsite and online. We encourage you to join us at MRC where we can enjoy community and practice in the beautiful natural setting of the Columbia River Valley.

Every day, without exception, has been truly awesome, fresh, beautiful. And every evening I want to stay up and look at the starry sky but flop into sleep with a smile.
