MW retreat an.

Dear All,
We are pleased to announce that the next retreat with our Teacher at Merigar will take place from June 30 to July 4, 2017.  The topic of the retreat will be Ati Dzogchen Kyung-chen Ding-va, the Dzogchen Semde text known as “The Great Garuda in Flight.”

Once again, the retreat will be free and open to all. In keeping with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s indications on generosity, the costs will be covered with small and large sponsorships. You, too, can contribute and become a sponsor of the Merigar retreat.

You can already register as well –all you have to do is complete this form. That way, in addition to helping us estimate the number of participants, you won’t have to wait in line to get your badge when you arrive at Merigar.

If you would like to collaborate by joining the other volunteers on the team, please see the Merigar secretary or contact the retreat PM (, +39/335 7175582). We need lots of karma yogis for various activities, ranging from the Info Point to registration, Gönpa staff, parking, food services, and cleaning. We greatly appreciate any help you can offer!

This year, a catering service will once again be providing lunch at Merigar between 13:00 and 14:30. You can purchase your lunch directly at the Yellow House. As in previous years, sandwiches will be offered as well.

During the hours of the teaching, a babysitting service will be available for children ages 5 and up. To reserve a place for your child or children, please contact the Merigar secretary, providing the first name, last name, and age.

Consult the Merigar website for a list of accommodations in the area:

In the next few weeks we will also be updating the Merigar website with more details on the program. You can also call +39/0564 966837 for more information.

See you at the retreat!
