Kalapa Care Week in October

Care Weekend for Kalapa, Body & Mind


Since 2001 our Kalachakra Kalapa Center (KKC) is 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 are dependent on helpers and volunteers.

We ask you to kindly support our center by offering your energy and time in 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 conducted yoga and meditation sessions. Everyone with manual skill 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 frame structure we have decided to dedicate the weekend to the care of the mandala this time.


The participation is also possible for single days.

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.
