About Us

Nestled in a forest of tall cedars and white pines on the northern crest of the Shawangunk Mountains, Sky Lake is a Shambhala contemplative center for meditation, arts and community. It is part of an international community of meditation centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Just two hours north of Manhattan in the Mid-Hudson River Valley, the Lodge has a contemplative, peaceful ambience and is a genuine haven from the rigors of urban life. You can walk in our woods, enjoy extraordinary hiking trails at nearby Mohonk Preserve, scale the Gunks or take a stroll around our spring-fed pond.
