Scheduling Your Retreat

To schedule a retreat:

  • Determine the desired dates for your retreat.
  • Determine one of the three beautiful cabins to use for your retreat.
  • Ensure there is the availability of the cabin for your retreat period.
  • Note: Milk Lake Shambhala Retreat Centre will reopen to experienced retreatants on May 1, 2021. Inquiries and retreat reservations may be made by writing: [email protected]

Please Note:

  • If a cabin is available we can reserve it for you but can only give you a final confirmation once we receive your deposit (your deposit is 50% of the total retreat), so please make your deposit promptly on receipt of your reservation confirmation to be sure of getting your desired dates.
  • We regret that we can only refund deposits for reservations canceled up to 14 days prior to the reserved period, so please reserve early and be sure of your desired dates.
  • If you need to cancel your reservation due to an emergency within the 14-day period or after your stay has begun, we will discuss with you a number of options—such as applying your deposit to future retreats—that can make the situation workable for you and Milk Lake.
