You are invited to take a 7-day, immersive meditation practice with a dynamic team of teachers and live music by Gurunam at world-renowned Menla Mountain Retreat. Situated in a natural paradise, Menla is the Dalai Lama's destination of choice when in the U.S. It holds an unusually high-frequency energetic vibration. The comfortable, spacious accommodations are accented with a touch of Tibet. This oasis in the beautiful Catskill Mountains is an ideal setting for our celebration of light and communal vibration.  

Located in Phoenicia, NY, Menla Mountain is in 320-acres of forest reserve in the Catskills. Surrounded by thousands of acres of state forest, Menla offers a serene and inspiring experience. Throughout the year visitors can enjoy the fresh mountain air, abundant wildlife, and natural beauty of our valley’s exquisite landscape. Designed to meet the highest standards of comfort and convenience, their modern eco-friendly facilities are an ideal setting for contemplation.
