The Power of Meditation

With Karma Trinlay Rinpoche

July 8 - 10, 2022


You see it everywhere: Meditate to relieve your stress! Control anxiety! Become more focused! All of which is scientifically proven to be true. But there is a deeper reason: by understanding how your mind works, you can actually free yourself from suffering—including stress and anxiety. Take two days to find out why from one of the highest lamas in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

“My meditation practice came to new heights. I feel recharged and ready to apply this wisdom to my everyday challenges.”


The ultimate discovery in meditation is the experience of a pure mind—clear, luminous and free from fear. However, it takes consistent practice to achieve this. After all, the mind is like a spoiled child, running wherever it wants. We have to slow down our thoughts, in order to really examine them. We do that through meditation.

Take a rare opportunity to learn practical teachings from Karma Trinlay Rinpoche, a teacher with the rare ability to make complex concepts clear and accessible. The program will include teachings, Q&A, and practice in calming meditation, compassion and other guided meditations, and walking meditation.

When not in class, relax in our library, walk our woods trails, enjoy our firepit and other outdoor spots.



  • Intimate setting with personal access to the teacher
  • Interactive sessions with question and answer periods
  • Shamatha and guided meditations
  • Delicious all-vegetarian meals with locally sourced ingredients
  • Option to extend stay on Personal Retreat
  • Extensive library of dharma books
  • Expansive wooded grounds with beautiful flora and fauna


There are no prerequisites for this program; it is appropriate for meditators at all levels and those simply interested in exploring the teachings.
