Kalapa Care Week in August


Care Week for Kalapa, Body & Mind

Since 2001 our Kalachakra Kalapa Center (KKC) has been dedicated to the spiritual practice of individuals and groups in retreats for yoga and meditation. To uphold the operation, the necessary maintenance and care of the center and to undertake repairs and extensions, we depend on helpers and volunteers.

We ask you to kindly support our center by offering your energy and time during our Kalapa Care Week! We combine the external care and cleaning of the house and garden in Kalapa using broom and tools with an internal care and purification of body and mind using awareness in action and guided yoga and meditation sessions. Everyone with manual skills and common sense who can help and contribute to the improvement and enhancement of the center is most welcome.

In order to offer a comprehensive structure we have decided to dedicate a whole week to the care of the mandala. Thus we can offer a more intense retreat experience and reduce time pressure at work. Participation is also possible for a shorter period.

Kalachakra Kalapa Center (KKC) is situated at an altitude of 1.000 meter in south-west Styrian Garanas in the municipality of Schwanberg.

The blessings of the masters, the quite location, the stunning views, the fresh air and water from our own source offer best conditions for spiritual practice, meditation and yoga.

The center was named “Kalapa” by H. H. Dalai Lama, capital of the legendary Pure Land of Shambhala, home to the Buddha Kalachakra.
