Welcome to Aryaloka Buddhist Retreat Center!

Located on fourteen acres of woodland and bordered by the winding Piscassic river, Aryaloka is a tranquil refuge in the heart of the Seacoast Region of New Hampshire. Since its founding in 1985, Aryaloka has been a place of spiritual discovery. We are a community dedicated to the study, practice and communication of Buddhist teachings. We are part of the Triratna Buddhist Community – an international modern Buddhist movement, with centers, communities and projects all over the world.

Aryaloka offers a great mix of classes, workshops and retreats on meditation, mindfulness, yoga, Dharma study, and ethical lifestyle topics such as vegetarian cooking. You can explore our current program on our calendar or just scroll below. Aryaloka is also available to rent. Read our land acknowledgement here.
