The Bodhicharya-France Cultural Association, under the spiritual authority of the Venerable Ringou Tulku Rinpotché, offers the possibility of studying and practising the Dharma in a framework adapted to meditation. To do this, a Centre situated in a calm area in the Department of the Vosges, Eastern France, is at your disposition. It is the French headquarters of the international activity of Ringou Rinpotché. Under the direction of Lama Tsultrim Guelek (resident in situ) the monastic centre welcomes everyone - monk, nun or secular – who wishes to live or spend a limited time in a Dharma centre. With a capacity for welcoming 30 people, the Centre organizes weekends of practice and study as well as weekly teaching.
The Centre’s objective is to organize individual and collective retreats, as well as welcoming Masters.
The Centre is one hour from Strasbourg, Nancy and Colmar, and one and a half hours from Mulhouse. The Centre is open to everyone, Buddhist or non-Buddhist, who wishes to retire from the world for a few days in order to recharge one’s spiritual batteries.
