During the First Part of The Heart of Meditation Retreat

Dates: from 27 to 31 July

The Rigpé Yeshé Association offers a programme designed to welcome children from 6 - 12 years old whose parents participate in the Meditation retreat this summer. Rigpé Yeshé is inspired by the universal and ethical values of the Buddhist tradition.

The children's programme includes lots of nature-based games and activities, as well as expressive and creative activities. One session per day is specifically devoted to developing mindfulness and awareness and exploring our inner resources to learn how to manage our emotions, develop self-confidence and connect with others.

The morning session is held in the Lerab Ling temple and then activities and sessions are held on the Rigpe Yeshe site which is an area dedicated for the children and equipped with marabout tents and toilettes.

Rigpé Yeshé is an association independent from Lerab Ling, recognised and registered with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and which complies with the regulations for Collective Youth Activities without accommodation. Read more about Rigpé Yeshé. The activities are held by qualified personnel. The children's program is a full-day program offered in parallel to the adult programmes.

  1. First, make sure that you yourself are registered for the Heart of Meditation retreat
  2. Then click on the button above to register your child.
  3. On the first page of the registration form, if you are registering more than one child, click on the "+" at the top left to add a participant.
  4. On the first page of the registration form, the system asks for an e-mail per child. Enter any e-mail (yours or a false e-mail). No information will be sent to this email. If you are registering two children, you will need to enter two different emails.
  5. On the "Payment" page, enter your own e-mail address to receive confirmation of your registration and other information.
  6. Please note! In the "Comment" box on the "Payment" page, indicate which event you (the parent) are registered for, so that your child(ren) are put in the same accommodation as you.
    In addition, if one of your children is under 5 years of age and is accompanying you but is not registered for Rigpé Yeshé, please indicate this in the comment box so that they can be added to your accommodation.
  7. If you register two children at Rigpé Yeshé, indicate the discount code RY2KIDS in the "Coupon" box.
  8. Important: Please do not pay for your booking straight away. Discounts may apply for accommodation and meals depending on the age of your child. For this, please be sure to leave a note in the booking specifying your child's name and age. The registration team will check the applicable rate and then email you a link for payment. You will then have 48 hours to pay to finalise and confirm your booking.
  9. Finally, watch out for the email you will receive to confirm your payment as this email will ask you for several documents that are essential for any organisation welcoming children (medical liaison form, authorisation...)
