Nestled on a hillside amidst junipers, De Lam, or “Joyful Path”, consists of two round buildings made of compacted adobe. Adobe construction helps keep temperatures comfortable during warm or cool weather.

Here you can enjoy the benefit of being centrally located in the Retreat Valley with easy access to the main road. Despite this proximity, the bedroom and practice space feel secluded and quiet. There is room for meditation and moderate movement practices on a new cork floor. The separate kitchen building has tile flooring and a ceiling fan and the bathroom is located between the kitchen and bedroom structures.

Due to long-term occupancy, C5 is not available at the moment.
