Kalapa Center RetreatA spacious and quiet retreat in Austria with meditation, body awareness, dream work and lots of time to rest.

Meditation is an invitation to slow down and shift from the doing mode to the being mode.To allow yourself to be in a place without pressure supported by the guidance of the course leaders and the presence of the group. Together we are resting in the very nature of your being, in what is sometimes called the natural state, original mind, pure awareness, no mind, or simply emptiness.

Dreams

are a significant part of our lives. As an honest mirror of our inner and social life, they reflect how we relate to ourselves and others. This sacred mirror provide spiritual blessings, visions, and guidance. Even when dreams appear in the form of nightmares they are opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Pointing to imbalances, to pain and problems, but always also to resources, often even to solutions.

offer different opportunities and energies. Kalachakra Kalapa Center is situated at a height of 1000 meters in Garanas, a rural community in southwestern Styria, one hour drive from Graz. The ancient Slavic word Garanas denotes “a place enclosed by hedges and protected by thorns”. This indicates that Garanas had already been a place of retreat and refuge in earlier times. A wonderful view, fresh air and water from our own spring provide the ideal conditions for recreation, relaxation, body work and spiritual practice. A nearby train station can be reached from Vienna or Graz Airport.
