The Retreat Elements

The retreat is comprised of three elements this year.

  • The Short Retreat – Thursday 12 –   Monday 16 January 2017 (for those new to retreat and new Rigpa Sangha who can’t make the Full Retreat)
  • The Full Retreat – Thursday 12 – Sunday 22 January 2017 (for everyone)
  • The Full Retreat and Ngöndro Study & Practice Extension – Thursday 12 –  Thursday 26 January 2017 (for Ngöndrö and Dzogchen Mandala students)

Note that the Short Retreat will especially cater for those newer to retreat and newer Rigpa students.

Rinpoche has asked that the established Rigpa Sangha come to the full Australian Summer Retreat, as this will be our main chance to connect with him in 2017.



We will offer all meals at the venue. This year, you can select to have breakfasts, lunches and dinners for a small fee.
