Meditation Retreats (also called Away Retreats) are a precious opportunity to step away from the busyness of everyday life, immerse ourselves in beauty, and enjoy Buddha’s teachings, meditations and spiritual friends.
Held at the Lotus Ranch, this rural retreat center is located in the rolling hills outside Wimberley, Texas, half way between Austin and San Antonio. Accommodations and vegetarian meals are included.

INTERNATIONAL KADAMPA FESTIVALS
Every year NKT-IKBU organizes world wide Kadampa festivals on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living. These include International Festivals, and National Festivals. These Buddhist Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of NKT.
The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.
