In-person Crestone Advanced Practice Retreat

With Tsoknyi Rinpoche

August 28 - September 3, 2024

The application process is closed.

TEACHINGS: Tsoknyi Rinpoche



The prerequisite is having received pointing out instructions from a qualified Vajrayana or Dzogchen master. If you have not been to an open retreat with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, you will be asked to watch an open retreat teaching online to familiarize yourself with his way of teaching and use of language. The Registrar will provide a link once you register.

Please contact the Registrar if you are uncertain that you meet this prerequisite. registrar@pundarika.org


A new registration process will be implemented for the Crestone in-person retreats. The process will consist of two steps: an online application followed by a review of applications and selection based on criteria we are currently developing. We are implementing this new system because of the increased interest in Rinpoche’s in-person Crestone retreats.

Acceptance will be based on a model of random selection, with preferential weighting (e.g. for members, and new students).  For more information and FAQs for members, monastics, scholarships, etc., please see the Crestone retreat application FAQs: https://tsoknyirinpoche.org/application-information.


The application process is now closed.


Onsite check-in will be from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. MDT on August 28th  at the Yeshe Rangsal tent site.

Orientation begins in the Yeshe Rangsal tent at 4:30 p.m. followed by the first teaching by Tsoknyi Rinpoche at 5:15 p.m.

There will be one 2-hour teaching, a recap of the teachings, and four meditation sessions daily. Each retreatant will be able to attend one small group audience with Rinpoche to ask practice-related questions.

The last teaching is on September 3.


Pundraika offers a limited number of partial and full scholarships for this retreat. Persons needing financial assistance are required to complete the retreat application form between February 1 – 15, 2024. See above.

If accepted into the retreat, we will send a scholarship application to those needing financial assistance.
