Myall Lakes Retreat

Meet Sogyal Rinpoche

World renowned Tibetan master, Sogyal Rinpoche will be visiting Australia again in 2016. You are welcome to spend 3 or 10 days at the annual Rigpa retreat in the beautiful Myall Lakes, and attend daily teachings given by Rinpoche.

This is a precious opportunity to be in the presence of such a great teacher and hear this centuries-old Buddhist wisdom first hand.

Two Retreat Options

The Short Retreat Option will start at 5pm on 14 January and conclude in the late afternoon/evening on 17 January 2016.

The Full Retreat Option will also start at 5pm on 14 January and conclude in the late afternoon/evening on 24 January 2016.

Note that the short retreat will especially cater for public and newer Rigpa students.

Rinpoche has asked that the established Rigpa Sangha come to the full Myall Lakes retreat, as this will be our main chance to connect with him in 2016.

Share the News

Please share this information with friends or family that may like to retreat from the hustle-and-bustle, for a few precious days with Rinpoche on the picturesque shores of Wallis Lake.

Other Notes

The annual Tuncurry Retreat for experienced Rigpa students is yet to be confirmed, as Rinpoche may need to travel back to Europe earlier than usual next year. We will keep you updated.
