ૐ Tarthang Tulku founded the Ratna Ling Retreat Center in the redwoods of Northern California in 2004 to serve as an intentional and spiritual community of teachers, students, and resident volunteers committed to practicing spirituality in everyday life. Everyone involved at the center strives to share to embody and transmit wisdom, compassion, harmony and depth of caring.

Their deep appreciation of the natural environment and practice of caring deeply for others creates an atmosphere that is conducive to spiritual transformation for visitors from all walks of life.


Sattvic Food

“Enjoy delectable vegetarian cuisine from around the world when you stay with us. We use organic products and many of the vegetables and herbs are harvested daily from our gardens to produce delightful meals reflecting the current season’s bounty. Meals are served buffet style in our Grand Dining Hall, where you can cozy up to the stone fireplace. You also may choose to dine outside in the Garden Pavilion, where you will be surrounded by the beauty of nature.

We can accommodate gluten/wheat free, vegan/dairy-free, and food-allergy meal requests.” – Ratna Ling staff
