Course Fees

The course fee covers – even not completely! - room and board, travel expenses of the teachers, a modest salary for the house team as well as administrative expenditures and running costs of the center. A lot of work is done on a voluntary, unpaid base. 

Donations for Teachers

According to the Buddhist tradition the teachings cannot be measured by material values and are therefore given entirely free of cost, the teachers demanding no fee whatsoever. To cover the cost of their livelihood and to ensure the continuation of their teaching activities, the teachers entirely depend on voluntary donations by the course participants at the end of retreats. Most of the teachers at our center live entirely on donations and have no other income.


The foundation, the center and the teachers decline all liability for any damage occurring to a person or to possessions in connection with the retreat. Meditation retreats in silcence and with limited social exchange are often not suitable for people with a psychiatric history. It is advisable to contact the teacher prior to registration.
