Kids welcomed

Our house is open not only for meditation practice but also for kids. We have developed our “Red-Line Concept” to create room for rest, tranquility and play. Our ”Amdo Dzong“ construction project “Unser Bauprojekt Amdo Dzong” pursues such goals (see separate Amdo Zong tab).

Our large meadow with brook, playground, climb tower, slide and swing offers a designated area for kids to play. In addition, we have a play room for the kids and their parents.

Note to parents: Please carefully read the flyer available at the information desk that contains our guiding principles for kids. Additionally, pay special attention that kids are not left on their own unsupervised at any time. At our Center, you will frequently meet other families with whom you can agree on shared child care.

Our «Elephant Club» offers regular child care during courses and meditation weekends:
For kids from 4-11 years • participation on registration only
Fees: Fr. 5.– per child and half-day • outdoor equipment incl. forest, playroom and playground
• next dates: • will follow in the next half year's programm, starting July 1st

• Our offer for childcare is exclusively made for parents participating at either one of our courses or meditation practices but not for “undisturbed” recreational activities. Kids older than 4 years visiting the retreat center must participate in our child care activities. Should parents decide otherwise, they are requested to spend their time together somewhere outside the center to ensure that our meditation practitioners remain undisturbed.
