I attended the "introduction to tibetan buddhism" weekend course at this center. Lectures were good and meditation sessions were really powerful. This is not a yoga retreat but it's perfect to; -learn buddhism, -meditate, -Focus on oneself, -Meet with other people who also has interest in buddhism and meditation. The center organically belong to Kopan Monastry and if you don't...

One of the highlights of my 2,5 months of travelling! I had no experience with buddhism and meditation and it was the perfect introduction in these topics! We had many good discussions and learned very nice meditation techniques. The food was great and a lot, coffee and tee was available all the time, the group of 17 people was really...

I went to the 3-day weekend course on Buddhism that including an introduction to Buddhism, meditation, yoga, meals and accommodations. Accommodations were a good value. Meals were not great- breakfast was delicious but lunch and dinner left a lot to be desired. The Buddhist introduction lacks concise presentation, and even lacks a bit of expertise on the subject matter. The...

To start with the positive things: very good food, nice surrounding (although it can be noisy), interesting meditations, not expensive for what you get. During the teaching I found there could have been more interaction. You get a lot of information (to much? difficult for me to stay focused sometimes) about the basic principles of Buddhism. If that's what you're...

Me and my friend visited to ask about courses and accommodation. The people were really helpful and friendly and the place is beautiful. But be aware of the crazy dog that attacks people! My friend got 3 puncture wounds in her arm. A guy that tried to help her also got bitten. Apparently she wasn't the first one..

My boyfriend and I did the weekend course here and were very happy to be part of such a beautiful experience. Our course colleagues were open and so great to have elaborate conversations with. The vegetarian food was the tastiest we've had in Pokhara. The classes taught by Drolkar were very interesting and offered a basis for getting familiar with...

“We had one of the bungalows and it was great. Drolkar and the boys were freshly painting everything and it was very clean. We even stayed for a couple of days after the course had finished”

“Arrive a day or 2 before the course to pick your room and hope to keep it on your own!”

“rooms within the monastry are filled up on a first come first serve basis (not the time of booking, but the time of arrival on friday) so come early on a friday if you don't want to leave the gates of the compound for the whole weekend.”
