cottage 12: Starlight
Starlight is a small, charming cottage with two rooms connected by a screened-in breezeway.
Starlight contains many unique elements including a rock sundial, handhewn gates and adornments from local woods and plants, walking paths, garden boxes, and a large meditation space partitioned from the bedroom with curtains.
The earth floor was made using water collected from all over the world, and rocks from Master Naropa’s retreat cave high in the Himalayan Mountains of Zanskar. A tiny kitchen space also houses the shower.
This small, spartan cottage encourages intense practice and is perfect for the serious retreater.
