Guna Norling is our retreat house overlooking the ocean in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. Rinpoche travels here once a year to support the local Sangha and teach an extended program that is open to the public. Four stories high, Guna Norling can accommodate retreatants on three of its levels, each floor with its own kitchen and bath. This retreat house will provide a place for practitioners who have already completed 3 to 7 years of retreat under Rinpoche's close guidance to continue their practice in extended 6-month sessions. Since March 2004, students have been rotating into this 6-month schedule.
