Meditate In The Mountains

A 3 day Meditation Challenge with Gen Losang Kelsang

You always wanted to meditate, but did not know how to start? Or would you like to deepen your previous meditation experiences? Then this 3-day meditation challenge is just right for you. An introduction followed by six guided meditations awaits you this weekend. Immerse yourself in your own clarity and depth of mind through skillful meditation instructions. The retreat will be led by Gen Losang Kelsang, a Buddhist monk with over 35 years of meditation experience who teaches the methods of meditation in a fun and light hearted way. He teaches the retreat in English with German translation. The retreat takes place in the Valais mountains, in the midst of a breathtaking mountain scenery.

All meditation sessions are guided, including a short talk, Buddhist prayer, and quiet time for contemplation and meditation. During the breaks, there is plenty of time for walks and exchanges with other meditators and help with a small job to ensure the retreat runs smoothly.

The Kailash International Retreat Centre (IRC), at 1502M above sea level, is situated high in the Valais mountains on the sunny side of Törbel. The view up the Matter and Saas valleys is breathtaking, crowned by the 4000M Weisshorn mountain. This is an exceptional location for meditation and is an ideal place for all those seeking rest and rejuvenation. Accommodation is available in shared rooms, double rooms and single rooms (single room please book quickly – they are booked up quickly). Meals are prepared with local vegetarian/vegan and organic ingredients, and during the meditation breaks, there are endless hiking trails for beautiful walks. Kailash IRC  offers wholesome conditions for those who wish to engage in shorter or longer retreats.
