The Ironknot Institute is a retreat center originally founded by Tibetan Buddhist meditation master H.E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, and dedicated to translating the meditation techniques of Mahayana Buddhist philosophy into a format accessible to people of all religions and walks of life. The Institute offers a program of simple, quietly revolutionary steps that can awaken us to our intrinsic wisdom and compassion and effect change in our hearts, minds and the world.  On whatever level these contemplative meditations are applied – from the intimate sphere of personal experience to the complex dynamics of family, community, national and even international relations – they will lead infallibly towards fulfillment and peace.
