In principle, everyone can plan his or her own schedule. Only mealtimes and the16th Karmapa group meditation at 20.15 h (in case no lecture is planned) are fixed.
We depend on volunteer support which means everyone has to help for 1-2hours per day (in the kitchen, garden or with other tasks, based on skill and preference).
On weekends, various programs/courses with different teacher and schedules are held.
Approximately once a month, we have a retreat weekend at our center (Friday evening until Sunday afternoon). You may join the group meditation at no fixed time, doing your individual practice though.
