Thank you for visiting our website. Ratna Ling is currently closed to guests due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are actively working on plans to reopen safely in accordance with state and local best practices — hopefully during the first quarter of 2021. Our online class offerings in meditation, Buddhist studies and more are continuously being expanded. See our tentative 2021 retreat calendar.

Our all-volunteer staff remains onsite engaging in our many not-for-profit service activities, maintaining and readying this retreat center space for you. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns at (510) 809-4995 or reservations@ratnaling.org.

Be safe. Be well.
