Youth Summer Retreat 

Being with ourselves, others and whatever comes up 


Join us for the third youth summer retreat to deepen our connection with ourselves, each other and the world in the inspiring environment of Lerab Ling.

  • How do we understand the connection between loving ourselves and loving others?
  • How can we recognise this connection in our own lives?
  • How can we be with whatever comes up, in our mind and in the world, by opening up instead of shutting down?

During this six day retreat we will be exploring these questions and others through reflection, practice and exchange - all with a good amount of humour and fun!

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.

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.
