Chamma Ling will provide Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche with a place for his own personal retreats, empowering the space with his presence and blessings. Rinpoche will also give final instructions and blessings, then put individual practitioners into retreat at least once each year. If Tenzin Rinpoche is not present during your retreat, we will have a monk or senior practitioner resident at Chamma Ling to assist retreatants if questions arise related to practice.

Our initial goal is to complete four cabins by September 2005. After our normally scheduled teaching retreat in September, Tenzin Rinpoche will stay a few extra days and give personal instruction to the first set of practitioners to go into retreat in the first cabins at Chamma Ling. Only initial benefactors will be eligible to apply for this unique, once in a lifetime opportunity.

As we prepare to begin construction of this unique retreat facility in the wilderness of the Sangre de Christo mountains, we are offering several ways for you to support Tenzin Rinpoche’s vision. Since our goal is to give people a place for personal retreat, we will reward personal generosity with time in our retreat cabins.

The Foundation to the Path: Five months in a retreat cabin at the time of your choosing, with no restriction on how soon the time must be used.
The Middle Way: Thirteen months use of a retreat cabin at any time in your life.
The Path of Vision: You gain the use of a cabin for one month each year, for the rest of your life.
The Crystal Mountain: For your generosity, a cabin will be made available for up to two months each year, at intervals of your choice, for the rest of your life.

Our cabins will be available for rentals to all practitioners, but benefactors will have first choice for time in the cabins. Weekly and monthly cabin rental rates are bound to increase over time, but benefactors will have “locked in” at the lowest available rates.

The time reserved for you through these levels of generosity is not transferable. The time provided is at the support level of the Independent Practitioner, in which you support yourself with food and other necessities. If a higher level of support is desired, such as for a dark retreat, it will be available at a reasonable additional cost. All these and more details will be spelled out when your reserve a cabin.

While we are not tax advisors, it is our understanding that generosity of this type is seen as prepayment for services by the IRS and may not be tax deductible. However, if your benefit is for a time period each year for life, and you do not use all of you allotted time, the value of the unused time may be deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for your specific situation.

Of course, since Chamma Ling is recognized as a non-profit corporation by the IRS, outright donations are fully deductible.
