Recommended Meditation Centers

A meditation retreat is a good opportunity to deepen one's practice. We can recommend the listed meditation centers from our own experience.

The meditation center in Beatenberg offers various forms of meditation from among the great wealth of Buddhist practices, continuing thereby a tradition of 2500 years, at the same time introducing forms and methods that are helpful in our modern times. The center is located in Beatenberg, Switzerland—overlooking Lake Thun and the Bernese Alps.

Drawing on the wealth of the Buddha’s teaching, we offer a complete program of training in concrete methods that relieve suffering and promote happiness and peace in ourselves and in the world. The European Institute of Applied Buddhism is located approx. 70 km east of Cologne.

Gaia House is a meditation retreat center offering silent meditation retreats in the Buddhist tradition. Join us in this historic setting, deep in the peaceful beauty of the South Devon countryside, to explore the teachings of the Buddha, guided by experienced Dharma teachers from all over the world.

For almost 30 years, many hearts and hands have created a precious treasure under the wide, open skies of northwestern Germany: Pauenhof, as the name of the estate has been for 1480 years. In recent years, a very special meditation center developed here.

Exploring Obstructive Beliefs

Over the course of our lifetime, we accumulate many strategies to deal with the complex situations we encounter. Some of these strategies might still be helpful, while others are obstructive and outdated. The problem is, even if we have noticed unhealthy patterns within us, it is not enough to just know about them intellectually. This practice explores obstructive beliefs, in order to challenge and transform them.
