Residential Retreat with Tempel Smith


Quieting the Mind,
Freeing the Heart

 a 6-night residential retreat at the B Bar Ranch with Tempel Smith
May 18 – 24

This retreat is currently full.  We are taking names for a Waiting List.  Thanks!

Saturday, May 18 – plan to arrive between 3 and 5 pm.
Through Friday, May 24, the retreat will close around 11:30 am.

Please plan to attend the entire retreat. Due to the limited number of participants, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend the retreat in full. Priority will be given to Montana and regional residents.


The B-Bar Ranch, Tom Miner Basin, near Emigrant, MT.

  • Registration Fee: $600
    Fee includes six nights of shared lodging and three meals daily. It covers the cost of Tempel’s meals, accommodations and travel (but does not compensate him for teaching). A $200 deposit is required to hold your space in the retreat when you register, unless you are requesting a scholarship (in which case we will set those terms with you by email). The balance is due April 1st.
  • Dana: At the end of the retreat, there will be an opportunity to offer a donation to Tempel. “Dana” is a voluntary, anonymous gift of gratitude and support, which has sustained the sharing of the dharma since the time of the Buddha. There is no specified amount – each practitioner freely gives what feels right to them.
