A European Retreat Center, which offers a broad scope of opportunities to enhance one‘s spiritual development needs the potential of the European Sangha. To support the practitioners close to their everyday life through local sanghas, embedded within national sanghas is a critical success factor for offering further services which can only be main-tained by a Retreat Center. And vice versa a Retreat Center can only be maintained by practitioners, who feel like giving something.

In Amsterdeam (May 2014) after solid research by the Founders’ Circle, Rinpoche agreed on the initial goal of raising 1.000.000 Euro funds in order to proceed (see also our progress chart). We are convinced that reaching this initial goal is a solid basis for our first step in this wonderful project.
