Namgyalgar Retreat Program

After some easing of Covid restrictions, retreats and courses at Namgyalgar have recommenced kicking off with a ‘Green Tara and Vajra Dance’ retreat with Cosimo DiMaggio from 17 – 21 February 2021. The next event will be a Vajra Dance Intensive weekend on 6 – 8 March coinciding with Worldwide Vajra Dance. This will be followed by a course of ‘The Dance of the Vajra That Benefits Beings’ with Thuy Nguyen on 21-22 March.  Other events are scheduled for the remainder of the year including a Yantra Yoga Winter Camp, Santi Maha Sanga retreat, Khaita workshops and a Sangha retreat.

Online activities such as collective practice, open and restricted Yantra Yoga and Breathe and Santi Maha Sangha study are also continuing via Zoom.

Gar Development

It is anticipated that the new retreat cabin will be installed at Namgyalgar in March.

A new aspect that has arisen is the Council requirement to landscape the boundary of the Gar with trees and shrubs so the cabin is not in view of the surrounding neighbours, which will also provide privacy for retreatants.

To make a donation towards the cabin please contact Sean:

Gar Air BnB

A lot of land and property maintenance has been undertaken by the new Caretakers in recent months and the Air BnB will soon be ready to open and accept guests.
