Space for Practice

Großer Meditationsraum

The Retreat area of Bordo offers space for individual and group retreats and invites you to participate in Buddhist courses and common meditations. The place has pure mountain water, solar electricity and solar water heating systems.

Group retreats - for example Shamata and Vipassana - of other Buddhist schools are welcome.

For the practitioners are seventeen simple single and multi-bed rooms in a total of five houses available, and a large and a small meditation room, a lawn around the stupa for walking meditation and a kitchen for self catering. There is also the possibility to eat with the habitants in the common kitchen.

Shamar Rinpoche stressed during his visit to Bordo in 2006, the qualities of the space for deep meditation and practice in retreat. In 2013 he adressed Bordo as an "ideal place for beginner yogis".
It is our pleasure to offer and share with you these existing structures as Retreathaus, temple, stupa and to practice and learn together!
