The United States

The United States is home to two Ligmincha retreat centers: Serenity Ridge and Chamma Ling. Serenity Ridge, in Shipman, Virginia, is our largest center and also headquarters to Ligmincha International. Chamma Ling Retreat Center is in Crestone, Colorado. In addition to hosting retreats throughout the year, Crestone is especially equipped for personal retreats of one or more weeks.

Ligmincha Texas has a dedicated center for practice in the city of Houston. There are also active practice groups meeting in California, Colorado, North Carolina, and Virginia.

The US also hosts two resident lamas. Geshe Denma Gyaltsen is the resident lama for Ligmincha Texas, and his teaching schedule takes him all around the country. He is a regular teacher at Chama Ling and at Serenity Ridge. Geshe Tenzin Yangton is the resident lama at Serenity Ridge. He is currently on sabbatical and is residing at Menri Monastery in India.

Retreat Centers

Serenity Ridge is open year round. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche teaches there four times per year and there are many other events with Ligmincha’s resident lamas, visiting lamas and authorized western students. Chamma Ling, Colorado is open seasonally. In addition to retreats, Chamma ling has solitary retreat cabins for practitioners in the Bön tradition, as well as experienced meditators of other spiritual traditions.
