Northeast Retreat Center

The Northeast Retreat Center is a hub for Diamond Way Buddhist practice in the North-Eastern region of North America. It is a place for meditation retreats, courses with Diamond Way teachers and Lamas, and a place to enjoy and deepen friendships. Resting on a high plateau with 270 degree views of inspiring forested hills, it features flat open fields at a high altitude that show the freedom of space and create the conditions for us to recognize our mind’s full potential and richness.

Sustained by the friendship and joyful effort of our regional sangha, the retreat center is a living expression of the 1,000 year-old Karma Kagyu transmission of Tibetan Buddhism and the activity of our root teacher, Lama Ole Nydahl. Lama Ole gave it the Tibetan name Karma Dondrub Ling, which means "Place of Accomplishment”.
