Kadampa Retreats

Yoga by waterfalls

The Kadampa Meditation Center and World Peace temple is one of the most beautiful buddhist temples in New York. Clearing Farm has unique lodging during key retreats throughout the year.

Clearing Farm is right next to the Kadampa Meditation Center and World Peace Temple in Glen Spey, New York. It’s 2.5 miles away and under a five minute drive. We’re the second closest place to say in Glen Spey to Kadampa (the Inn at the Glen is the closet if you were wondering).

During the biggest retreats at Kadampa, we work directly with the temple to allow people to book lodging on a room basis. This means that you’ll get a private room and share the common spaces only with other guests from the temple. All of our rooms feature high-speed internet, free coffee, luxury bed and bath linens and all essentials like a hair dryer, working kitchen, heating/AC and so on.
