Ratna Ling has generously welcomed us as guest teachers at their stunning Retreat and Wellness centre. Grounded in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition, Ratna Ling creates a unique opportunity to restore your body and mind, and reconnect to the truest version of yourself. Located in the coastal redwoods of Sonoma County, Ratna Ling is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails. If you're lucky you may even encounter a wild turkey on your path!
Dining at Ratna Ling is a truly holistic experience, featuring globally inspired vegetarian cuisine. The chefs highlight seasonal and organic foods. They use vegetables and herbs from their own gardens, bringing an authentic sense of community to every meal. Ratna Ling accommodates food modification requests, as long as they are notified at the time of booking.

Ratna Ling is home to private cottages nestled in the rolling Sonoma hills on the beautiful coast of northern California. Each suite-style cottage is a complete home in itself, including a living room, dining area, full bathroom, stocked kitchenette and outdoor deck. The wood-finished interiors mirror the nourishing serenity of the surrounding landscape - redwood, pine, and oak forests. For this retreat, you will be reserving a private room in a shared cottage.
