Big Centres Meeting & Meditation Week update

We’re happy to again host some of our Diamond Way centers from around the world to share their experiences and best practices. After that  we will dive into  meditation practice for a week and then welcome Lama Ole Nydahl for a weekend program.


We also want to answer the most popular question at the moment:

“Why can’t I register to sleep at the EC when Lama Ole is there?”

Why can’t I register to sleep at the EC when Lama Ole is at the EC?

So of course, with a program as great as this, and with our Lama not travelling as much lately, a lot of people want to come to the EC, which is great, but as it’s winter and there’s no camping possibilities, this means there’s a limited amount of space where people can sleep. So unfortunately, we had to stop accepting registrations for accommodation a little while ago. We don’t want to turn anyone away, but kindly ask that if you expect to sleep at the EC (having registered that you’re staying somewhere else or having not yet registered) that you manage your expectations of comfort and the actual guarantee of space in advance ;0)


If you have’t yet registered but would like to come as a day guest, please still register here, so we know how many people to feed.–w/viewform


We are not quite yet at gompa capacity, but this is likely to come soon. When this happens, we will offer streaming around the EC for those who cannot fit in the gompa.


Further information about parking, shuttle etc will be sent to you a few days before you arrive, so please register to make sure you receive the email!
