general information

infoAccess to the Teachings is free and open to all.

If you have not yet done so, please take a moment to register now

The Teachings will take place in the Gönpa of Merigar, the Temple of the Great Contemplation. Shoes are left outside the Gönpa before entering, and we sit on the floor. A limited amount of cushions are available, but you are also welcome to bring your own.
If you need to sit on the chair, please notify Merigar Office in advance at office@dzogchen.it to ensure that a seat can be reserved for you.
It is also possible to follow the teachings sitting in the area outside of the Gönpa.

Given the large number participants, we request that you do not bring your dogs to Merigar. We realize this is a big sacrifice for many people, but unfortunately we do not have the means to accommodate pets.

 where to eat and where to stay


At the food counter at the Yellow House, a sandwich will be offered to each participant.

Merigar does not have any accommodation or camping facilities on site, but operates a small B&B in Arcidosso called MeriRooms.
We also have a list of accommodation facilities in the vicinity that you can contact directly.

for your kids


Every day, babysitters will be available who can entertain your kids during the teaching sessions with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
Parents should bring their kids to the Yellow House about a half an hour before teaching sessions.
The service is free and is meant for children who are at least 5 years old.
