Odiyan Retreat Center


Who We Are

We are long-term Odiyan residents offering courses based on Tarthang Tulku’s books, and on our experience with applying their teachings in our own lives and work situations.

Our courses are based on a variety of Rinpoche’s books, both classic and recent publications, such as Caring, Skillful Means and Mandala Gardens. Each course is embedded in a series, which consists of 6 to 10, or sometimes even 12, classes, followed by a seminar or workshop.

Unless otherwise specified, all classes are online.

About Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s books:

The Dharma is new in the West, and its teachings are difficult to express in their full form. Still, readers of our books have found them useful for their studies and practice, instructive, and helpful in dealing with negativity and emotional upset. They offer ways to transform every situation into opportunities for self-knowledge and insight into human nature. 

I have focused primarily on books that provide ways for Western students to calm and focus their minds on being more positive and caring, creating balance and harmony in their lives.’
