Our Dharma Course Program 2022

After the winter break, Bordo opens its doors again in March 2022. To be able to participate in the activities it is necessary to have membership of Karma Dechen Yangtse; this can be done on arrival. Daily multilingual meditations are open to all: they start at 7:30, 17:30 and 20:00.

Early registration for both courses and retreats are necessary to secure a place. Availability of single rooms is very limited. If you have any questions or would like to register for a course, the best way to contact us is by e-mail: bodhipath@bordo.org. Please note that e-mails are not processed daily!

We offer a Dharma programme with teachers in four languages. Translation is provided for some courses; this is indicated under ‘Course language’. Additional translation is possible in certain cases if several people wish to enrol firmly at an early stage. Courses in which personal exchange is important take place without translation.

Covid-19: In Bordo, the decrees in force in Italy, and in particular in the Piedmont region, apply and may change relatively quickly. Please also make your own enquiries about the current entry requirements, which may vary from country to country.

Please visit our homepage for information on arrival and accommodation.

The Dharma courses are open to all, unless otherwise stated. In certain cases, participation is only possible for people who have formally taken refuge in the 3 Jewels. This applies in particular to Buddhist individual retreats. Here it is also necessary to already be familiar with Buddhism and to have a practice that you wish to deepen. Please consult our homepage beforehand if you are interested. For actual silent retreats, please contact institutions and teachers who support this form. Exceptions are possible for group retreats led by qualified Buddhist teachers.
