Sky Lake is closed for public access through the end of the year 2020.

We are continuing to stay closed to the public in response the coronavirus emergency. Our intention is to help slow it down because the slower it moves, the more hospitals can cope, and the more lives will be saved.  As we all continue to navigate the changes of physical distancing, stay-at-home orders, altered routines and considerable loss and uncertainty, Sky Lake is  extending our daily online meditation sessions.

Retreat is part of our Shambhala tradition and we want to share this practice as much as possible.  Our ‘closed retreat’ is available online at 10 am and 6 pm daily.  These sessions include chants and meditation.   Why not experience a retreat format at home?  We can practice together, at a distance.  Here is the link to join the zoom room:

Sky Lake Zoom Room (open online daily from 10 to 11 am and 6 to 6.30 pm).

 

Sky Lake is a Shambhala contemplative center for meditation, arts and community located in the beautiful surroundings of the Hudson Valley. 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. Nestled in a forest of tall cedars and white pines on the northern crest of the Shawangunk Mountains.
