Fearless Heart - US National Festival - Arizona

With Gen-la Kelsang Jampa
September 20-25, 2024

Everyone welcome! Join us in a pilgrimage to our beautiful International Kadampa Retreat Center at the gateway to the Grand Canyon. We will fly and drive to this special place to receive powerful teachings from our Deputy Spiritual Director, Gen-la Jampa, and to meet and connect with the amazing Kadampa Sangha from all over the US.

We are so happy to help you work out the travel details.


Fly to

  • Flagstaff, AZ - 30 min away, but a pricier flight
  • Phoenix, AZ - 2 hours way, cheaper
  • Las Vegas, NV - 3.5 hours way, cheapest flights and rental cars.

It's quite possible that there will be a shuttle bus from/to Phoenix at the start and end of the festival.

Where to stay

During the festival, there will be accommodations on site - camping, dorms, and some single and double rooms, though the indoor accommodations tend to get reserved quickly. Otherwise, there are places to stay in Williams, Flagstaff, etc - hotels, AirBnBs, and various camping and resort situations, especially because we will be so close to Grand Canyon National Park.

A working visit to help with setup

Some of us will head down early, such as Monday, Sep 16, to help with setup. You are welcome to join us. Typically, during a working visit, some dormitory accommodation is made available for free in exchange for helping.
