Dzogchen Osel Ling is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, about 45 minutes from Austin. Most arriving by air choose to use our significantly discounted Super Shuttle service with our exclusive reserved vans departing from the Austin Airport at 3:00pm and 5:00pm on the day retreat begins. These vans are reserved on a first come, space available basis. If you would like to reserve a seat, please choose this option during your online application for the retreat, or let us know right away at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bookings for these van departures will be invoiced by Dzogchen Center upon reservation, at the rate of $45 One Way.
For return to the airport, exclusive reserved Super Shuttle vans will be available at 11:15am & 1:00pm on the closing day of retreat, also reserved on a first come, space available basis. Again, if you would like to reserve a seat, please choose this option during your online application for the retreat, or let us know right away at email@example.com. Bookings for these van departures will be also invoiced by Dzogchen Center upon reservation, at the same rate of $45 One Way.
Should our reserved vans not be amenable to your travel schedule, or be fully booked, you may alternatively make your own arrangements with Super Shuttle for a Shared-Ride to Dzogchen Osel Ling and/or back to the airport. The Shared-Ride rate is $89.60 per person, one way. If you reserve this online with Super Shuttle in advance, they will offer our retreatants a 10% discount (online only)—please ask us for the discount code should you choose this type of service. If you do not book online in advance, the rate is $89.60 and you can simply show up at the Austin Airport Super Shuttle counter and ask for a Shared-Ride service out to Dzogchen Osel Ling or call Super Shuttle for a Shared-Ride pickup from Dzogchen Osel Ling back to the airport. All Shared-Rides will be arranged for by you and paid for by you directly to Super Shuttle. Please note that the Shared-Ride service is more expensive than our exclusive reserved vans, and can involve a wait for departure and/or make a few stops before getting you to Dzogchen Osel Ling or back to the airport, as the case may be.
If you are arriving a day early to participate in the Work-Day, our exclusive van shuttles will depart from the airport at 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm on the day before retreat starts, also at the rate of $45 One Way. Please plan your flights accordingly and indicate on your registration application (or by email subsequently) which shuttle you would like a seat on—thanks!
Car rentals, private car and taxi are also options for arrival at Dzogchen Osel Ling. You should allow about an hour to get from central Austin to Dzogchen Osel Ling. Driving directions will be provided upon request for those arriving by car.
