Learn About Palyul US Summer Retreat

Meditation has become an increasingly popular and effective way to promote mental and physical health, bringing profound benefits to the mind, body, and spirit. At the Palyul Retreat Center, attendees will not only learn how to meditate, but they will also receive deeper teachings on how to generate compassion and cultivate inner peace.

The center holds formally organized retreats every summer, beginning with the July 4th weekend Nyungné (fasting and purification) retreat and followed by the annual summer retreat, which lasts from July 10 to August 10. The program features the traditional step-by-step approach, from the foundation practices of Ngondrö to the deep meditation practices Dzogchen Trekchö, providing attendees with an immersive and comprehensive experience.

In 2023, the center will host a cultural program, religious blessings, music, and a picnic on August 5 and 6. All attendees should read the center's COVID policy, which is available here.

Individuals can also request permission to conduct a personal weekend retreat at the center, with facilities available for extended personal retreats by Palyul students. This presents an opportunity for attendees to experience the tranquility and peacefulness of the center at their own pace.

Meditation has the power to transform lives and provide individuals with a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. If you're looking for a transformative experience, come join us at the Palyul Retreat Center this summer, and discover how "Liberation is in the Palm of Your Hand".

The Yangbum, or Wealth Vase, were filled and consecrated at Palyul Ling over the course of the 2022 retreat and blessed with prayers offered by Namdroling monks, led by special visitor, Umze Tenin Rinpoche (also known as Lama Bhunzin). These 3,000 vases were prepared according to a terma of Guru Rinpoche’s to increase peace and positive energy and to harmonize the elements of the environment. In addition to the hundreds of specified ingredients, the vases contain pills made by His Holiness that contain relics and holy substances from his personal collection. Read more below!
