The Eight-fold Path to Inner Strength

With Rosalyn White

September 2 - October 21, 2020
As we continue to navigate the unpredictable events of the COVID pandemic and global change, we need as many tools as possible to cope with our fear, sadness, frustration, stress, and anger.  The Buddha offered fundamental teachings on how we can work with suffering, whether it be small, big, temporary, or chronic.  He called it the Eightfold Path, which helps us overcome obstacles and brings a deep sense of satisfaction in our lives. 

Full Presence Mindfulness

With Jack Petranker

October 17 - November 21, 2020
Ratna Ling invites you to embark upon a deep and profound journey into Full Presence Mindfulness, a practice that asks how we can bring about meaningful change in our lives by coming to know our own minds better.  Based on the works of Tibetan teacher Tarthang Tulku, Ratna Ling’s founder, Full Presence Mindfulness inspires us to surpass our self-created limits.

Living Wisely : Maintaining Balance and Meaning Under Modern Conditions

November 6 - December 18, 2020
How can we face our current challenges calmly, and develop the wisdom we need to live balanced, meaningful lives? Practical teachings from the Tibetan tradition guide us to self-knowledge and connect us to the inner heart of our being. Everyday life becomes a precious space of renewal and growth.

“A beautiful and serene retreat center. The setting is breath-taking. The food is delicious and the accommodations are clean, comfortable and exquisitely designed. A wonderful getaway to truly relax and escape from it all.”
