Once through the entrance, we approach the main house, a beautiful Swiss construction of the late 19th century, which has been completely restored. The rooms and dormitories for visiting guests are here. The Center can accommodate one hundred people. Including a camping site, there are four categories of accommodation.

A Place for Practicing Meditation

Large Gompa in the Gymnasium
Depending on the event and the number of participants, the Center uses three gompas (shrine rooms), one of which is permanent. The first, the smallest, is our daily practice space. The second intermediate size is usually used for weekend teachings, for example. The third is for major events that host a large number of participants.

Forest Path
Forest Path
Fields, forests, wild and domestic animals surround the Center. We invite you to be attentive with all your senses. The beauties of nature caress our eyes, the scent of flowers and undergrowth excite our nose, the sounds of birds chirping affect us as the most beautiful music.

To Conclude

Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
It was in May of 2010 when the first meeting between Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche and his students took place here in the field of our future Center. Rinpoche then said to us: "After several years of research and projects, our international Center is finally becoming a reality which is a great joy for me." Rinpoche invites us all to now bring this Center into our hearts so that it will grow. "This is your Center, it is our Center and every moment we can feel that joy of being at home." Everyone who would like to discover our Center, our lineage, meet our Masters, participate in weekend teachings, in retreats, in our regular group practices or simply come here to do an individual practice, it is with great pleasure and admittedly with a certain pride - to invite you, welcome you, and we open our Center and our hearts to you.
