Finding Connection Again.

Youth Summer Retreat at Lerab Ling and Online


No need to say how strange this phase was, for some it was amazing (a deep introspection), for others it was their worst nightmare (solitude, depression, etc). Either way, we are here now. So let's make the most of it. This 2021 Youth Summer retreat will be all about connection.

We'll be discovering what connection truly means, checking in with ourselves, and from that space, going outwardly connecting with others. Diving into the depth of love and kindness and how we can work with it when we need it the most.

Let's get to know ourselves better, connect with others around us, with nature, and with our true nature. Let's Find Connection Again. Just for one week, let's give ourselves that gift - of coming home to the heart.

Share it to make the connection even stronger.

Everyone aged between 18 and 35 is welcome. If you have any questions, or if you are not sure if this event is for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are a group of young(-ish) people from pretty much all over the world who share an interest in meditation and Buddhism. Each of us has found in our personal experience that meditation can bring a little more space and a little more kindness to our everyday life.
