Diamond Mountain Retreat Center is an intimate and beautiful setting for your next group event or retreat.
Our lower valley facilities include the Casa de Luz and the new Je Tsongkapa Student Center, completed in fall 2015.
Je Tsongkapa Student Center
The Je Tsongkapa Student Center (JTSC) is our newest addition boasting a full commercial kitchen, coffee lounge, dining room, library and is fully ADA compliant. Our Mission-style JTSC features beautiful tiling and custom lighting throughout, a full AV center, wireless internet, covered porch, and library/study room. It is only steps away from Casa de Luz and is completely climate controlled.
Casa de Luz
Casa de Luz, our Temple and second group meeting space, is made of adobe brick and features wood flooring and carpeting throughout (carpets can be rolled up for yoga classes if preferred). Two stages are available for talks and presentations. A full sound system projects throughout the room. Casa de Luz contains a full selection of yoga mats, meditation cushions, and chairs.
All rental prices include full use of our facilities, grounds, and walking trails. A variety of meal packages are available to meet your group’s needs. Some groups enjoy cooking for themselves using their cottages’ self-catering kitchens. Other groups prefer to share their meals in our beautiful new dining room in the lower valley. Delivery to the retreat valley can be arranged upon request.
