retreathaus10Next to the Drikung Garchen Institute a retreat house with three rooms available for individual retreat has been created. Here it is possible to meditate in absolute seclusion and silence for longer or shorter periods of time, and to deepen one’s practice under the guidance of Drubpon Tsering Rinpoche, the resident Lama. The retreat house is open to practitioners of all Buddhist traditions.

The rooms are furnished with an altar, meditation table, sitting cushion and a bed. They all have their own bathroom with shower or bath tub and toilet. Towels and bedcovers can be provided if necessary. A well equipped kitchen is available to practitioners, for preparing their own meals. There is also a washing machine for longer retreats.RH Wohnzimmer

The shared living room accommodates a library with a constantly growing volume of Buddhist literature, as well as a comfortable lounge with a tiled stove, a writing desk and dining space.
A terrace with a small pond and a Buddha statue overlooks a spacious garden.  At the far end, in a small wooded area is a garden hut available for individual retreat in absolute silence.

The garden of the institute can be accessed through a garden gate, where a large Buddha Shakyamuni Statue Buddha im Garteninvites visitors for circumbulation.
