MEDITATION INSTRUCTION
SECLUDED SETTING IN CALIFORNIA COASTAL REDWOODS

 

The mission of the Padmasambhava Peace Institute is to create a place for human and environmental restoration and to teach applied peace and compassion.

We are an educational non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based at the Black Mountain Preserve, a beautiful 485-acre property set in the hills and forests overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in western Sonoma county.

We welcome all sectors of the community to this retreat space for workshops, meetings, and for structured or informal study and practice. The Institute is home to a Buddhist lay community, and we regularly organize Buddhist events that are open to the public. Director Jigme Tromge Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master trained from early childhood, offers consultations by appointment for those seeking instruction in meditation or other Buddhist practice. We also host programs in environmental stewardship, health and cultural programs.

The Peace Institute houses a conference hall, shrine room, a large fully-equipped commercial kitchen and dining room, spacious comfortable dormitories and private rooms. There are additional outdoor teaching and recreation areas. We are situated in a delightfully quiet and pristine location near Cazadero, and about one hour from urban Santa Rosa.

The Institute also periodically organizes meditation classes in Berkeley or San Rafael under the direction of the spiritual director Jigme Tromge Rinpoche. All are welcome, and there is no charge for attendance.
