Deepening Your Practice
If you have an established meditation practice and are interested in Tibetan Buddhism, we have a range of in-person and online offerings taught by Tibetan Buddhist and Western masters. Teachings are in the Namchak lineage, a branch of the Nyingma tradition, and can take you from the beginning of your journey all the way through a three-year retreat and beyond.
May “One Community” Monthly Sangha Gathering!
May Theme: Meaningful Work
Our personal practice isn’t just for our own benefit but for others, too. We dive into the meaning of work, consider our gifts, and examine work as an environment to practice being in community and contributing to the greater good.
Each month, we come together as a community to meditate, share, and connect around our practice. Each gathering is facilitated by a different Namchak peer, staff member, thought leader or teacher around the theme of the month. The agenda closely follows our Learning Circle model, which includes check-ins, a Dharma talk or shared resources around the theme, journaling, small discussion in break-out rooms, full group discussions and group practice. The culture of this event encourages active participation, but participants always have the right to pass.
We will share the monthly theme, resources, and discussion questions with our community ahead of time. We invite you to submit ideas for monthly themes and discussions that you would like to explore as well!
Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Please note: Confirmation emails from Eventbrite often end up in spam/promotions tab. Please check there if you do not see the confirmation email with the Zoom info.

In-person opportunities for practice and immersion
The best way to learn a new language is total immersion; the best way to make new habits of mind is also total immersion. Retreat allows that. Namchak Retreat Ranch will open in 2023.
Designed for all ages, this program will offer an immersive experience at our Montana retreat ranch. Each summer two, four-week sessions will be offered, with each day including meditation, work on the land, and practice with our teachers.
Beginning in 2025, we will offer three-year residential retreat at our Montana retreat ranch. Practitioners who have completed the Ngöndro and our two-year Ancient Wisdom Engaged program will be eligible to apply. For more information please contact…
