Myall Lakes Retreat

“The Myall Lakes Retreat is very special. It has always been very special. This time, it is going to be even more incredible. Because over the years, we learn and we go deeper and deeper.”

Sogyal Rinpoche

Meet Sogyal Rinpoche in person

World renowned Tibetan master, Sogyal Rinpoche will be visiting Australia again in 2016. You are welcome to spend 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 master and hear this centuries-old Buddhist wisdom first hand. Rinpoche will be supported by experienced teachers offering explanations and practices that enable you to learn, integrate and transform your life in a very practical and productive way.

The retreat will be held between 14-24 January 2016.

Registration details and more information will follow. Please keep the dates in your diary.

Short Option Announced - Myall Lakes Retreat 2016 with Sogyal Rinpoche

Rinpoche has just confirmed a Short Option for public and new students at next year’s Myall Lakes Retreat.


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 Option is for public and new Rigpa students. Rinpoche has asked that the established Australian Rigpa Sangha come to the full Myall Lakes retreat, as this will be our main chance to connect with him in 2016.

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.

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.
