The Dzogchen Retreat Center Europe is being designed to specifically provide a peaceful environment free from distractions. This Retreat Center will be an ideal campus where beginning students and advanced practitioners can find personal guidance, formal training practice and like-minded companions providing the necessary support to foster a practice of love, compassion and wisdom. It will be a wisdom station for healing individuals, families and society.

The DRCE is open for Sangha to come and volunteer, as well as spend time doing personal practice. If you would like to visit, fill in the application by clicking the link below. We will then check that there are no conflicts with any ongoing events or activities and get back to you in a few days with a response.

In January of 2020, the The Dzogchen Shri Singha Europe Association auspiciously found and acquired the land and the beginnings of the Dzogchen Retreat Center Europe in the beautiful mountains of Lower Austria.
During the first half of year 2020 we were able to turn an old hay barn into a shrine room and make some changes in the main building which has allowed us to already hold various events.
Thus, we are already off to an incredible start. Now we need your help to raise funds to renovate, construct, and complete this holy center.
