Learn more about how to live authentically, have a cup of their chai and a piece of decadent cake and soak up a way of life that just makes sense.

We are so fortunate for the opportunity to be inspired by so many precious teachers at Chenrezig. I always come away feeling so enriched from spending time with people full of compassion & kindness.

Hum... not sure where to start with this place. It's in beautiful settings, very rustic & basic, some might find it charming. Unfortunately the staff at the cafe was not very friendly and very up themselves, and coffee wasn't good at all.
