A 2 day Weekend Sangha Retreat for Core Sangha - Order Members and Mitras, led by Paramabodhi.

Recollecting the Buddha

Paramabodhi will guide us in practices of Mindfulness of the Body, from the Satipatthana Sutta, including 6 element practice and dissolution of the body.

This is a short retreat but if you would like to stay an extra day please let us know. 

Health and Safety

We will require everyone to be fully vaccinated, to take a PCR test for COVID-19 within 3 days of the start date, and to take reasonable precautions to protect against infection in the days leading up to the retreat. Other requirements will be similar to those we have in place for all our in-person events.

If you consider yourself at increased risk you should not attend.

If you are planning to travel by plane or other public transport (although we recommend against it, since everything is so uncertain) please be sure you have somewhere to stay in case of illness, cancelation or while awaiting test results.


Is a rustic residence with a very beautiful shrine room, located  in Lake County – about 2.5 to 3 hours North of San Francisco. The main building has a kitchen, dining room, sitting room with wood burning stove, 7 small dorms, some with 2 beds, some with 3 beds, 3 indoor toilets and 2 showers. There are no private rooms. If you do not feel comfortable sharing a room with others we may be able to find space in the living room or shrine room, depending on numbers attending, so please get in touch about this before you register.  There is also the option to camp, although it will be cold, and possibly raining or snowing. 

Travel and Carpooling

If you need help organizing a ride please let us know and we will do our best to get you there. If you are driving and can offer rides, please also let us know. Thank you! 

I'm sorry that we cannot arrange airport or train station pickups. (See health and safety above.)
