QUIETNESS IN THE CENTER

When you reach the Milarepa Retreat Center, you will be struck by the peaceful atmosphere and quietness right upon your arrival, whether in your room, the cafeteria, the meditation hall, or in the beautiful surroundings. This place invites to turn inwards and helps us to experience the stillness in ourselves. Of course, this can only happen if we make a conscious decision to abstain from unnecessary talk during the duration of our stay.


CLIMATE

As a rule, the climate in northern Germany is somewhat cooler and rainier than in southern Germany. In summer, an average temperature of 22°C is reached, and subzero temperatures can occur in winter. For the most part, though, the average temperature is 1°C.


CLOTHING AND OTHER PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

If you have decided to spend some time in the Milarepa Retreat Center, we would like to offer a few tips:
Please remember to bring:

  • Weatherproof clothing (rain) and waterproof footwear (the weather can change very quickly)
  • Raincoat / umbrella
  • Thermos bottle and cup
  • Cash for offerings or objects you might wish to purchase
  • Your personal medications, homeopathic remedies, insect repellent
  • Note books, pens and pencils etc., for making personal notes
  • Warm slippers and thick socks (in winter)
  • Optionally your own meditation cushion (cushions are available in the meditation hall)
  • Optionally a light meditation blanket and a shawl
  • For retreats: mala, vajra, bell and damaru
  • A flashlight and batteries if you wish to enjoy nature at night
  • Comfortable clothing for retreats and courses
  • Your practice books
  • An additional blanket and handtowels for your room (your bed is made)

 

HANDICAPPED-FRIENDLY ACCOMODATION

The entrances to the guest house and the temple are handicapped-friendly for easy entering and exiting. In addition there are two handicapped-friendly rooms in the Center. Please indicate in your registration if you will need one of these rooms. You can also indicate your specific difficulties, so that we can prepare the best possible stay for you.
