Group Retreats

Group retreats last from a weekend (Silence is Golden weekend Retreats) to 10 days (Spring Retreat), one month (Fall Retreat) or three months (Snows Retreat). These retreats are guided and allow the student time to train in a particular practice in silence but with the support and structure of the group sessions. The residents and managers of Tharpaland have experience in retreat and are happy to offer their support.  All group retreats are conducted in silence, although retreaters needing personal advice can receive this either by interview or correspondence with Gen Devi.
