Daily agenda

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.

Daily schedule:
08.00 h First meditation cycle*
08.30-10.00 h Breakfast
10.15 h Second meditation cycle* or lecture
12.30 h Lunch
15.00 h Third meditation cycle* or lecture
18.30 h Dinner
20.15 h Group meditation on the 16th Karmapa or lecture (Start of Dharma evenings on Friday and/or Saturday at 20.15 h)

Whenever possible, retreat weekends are hosted by one of our neighborhood centers
