Vajra Vidya Retreat Center was built under a sacred mountain between the Karmapa Tashi Gomang stupa and the Tulku Urgyen stupa. The Center was founded by the Venerable Thrangu Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master, and is open to all practioners.
We have individual retreat rooms for doing short and long-term retreats under the guidance Khenpo Jigme. Khenpo has completed the five year monastic college (Shedra) program and a three-year retreat. He is available for instruction in almost any practice and for personal interviews.
The Vajra Vidya Retreat Center is a new and modern facility providing a comfortable and supportive environment for practice. The daily schedule includes one hour of morning and evening group practice (optional), as well as the traditional four sessions a day for individual practice. Silence is observed most of the day. Retreatants are welcome to design their own retreat within the framework of the daily schedule.
The center is well heated and well insulated, equipped with a modern kitchen, showers and laundry facilities, a small Buddhist library, and wireless internet service. Three vegetarian meals a day are included in the cost of the private room.
The Vajra Vidya Retreat Center is located at 3203 Camino Baca Grande in Crestone, Colorado. Our mailing address is PO Box 1083, Crestone, CO, 81131.
