Everybody staying at Bordo is invited to attend to the communal daily meditations which begin at 7:30, 17:30 and 20:00.

Individual practice and Single retreats

Bordo is very well suited for individual practice. In nicely furnished rooms, one's personal practice can be deepened. It is always possible to take part in regular group meditations and rituals that take place at the centre. Depending on the activities ongoing at any specific time, it is possible to cook for yourself in the Dharma House kitchen or to share meals with groups attending courses in the communal dining room.

A regular daily routine is mandatory for personal practice. It is important to be guided by a Lama or a Dharma teacher in order to direct the structure of your retreat in advance, and to communicate this with your inscription.
