Regional Acharya Retreat

May 18 - 21

Acharya Pin

This is a gathering of senior teachers of the lineage from Northeastern North America. All Shambhala international acharyas are invited to attend this gathering.

As an invited participant, you will receive a note explaining the registration process along with a registration authorization code.


The program fee, $120, includes tuition, room, and meals. Please note that housing for the Acharya Retreat is free, but the registration system will automatically add the housing charges. The front desk staff will delete those charges manually and will double check that all the numbers are accurate in the weeks leading up to arrival. 


During this retreat, housing is free, if available.  Any participants staying on for the Scorpion Seal 10 retreat will pay standard housing rates for that program.

Karmê Chöling strives to meet the housing requests of everyone attending international assemblies. Due to limited room and dorm space at both the main house and Ashoka Bhavan, priority goes to program staff, or people with physical limitations who have made arrangements well in advance.

If you fit into one of these categories, please email

Please note that your 1st or 2nd housing option may not be available due to the need to prioritize staff and faculty for SSA10. Housing will be first come, first served. Definitive housing assignments are not yet available, and will depend on the number of acharyas who register. If you want to secure housing immediately, we suggest you look offland. Here is a link to local accomodations:
