Menorca IRC is located in the middle of a forest in the middle of the island where there are beautiful walks and picturesque views. It’s a very peaceful environment for a meaningful life.
There is a rich spiritual program of classes, courses and retreats as well as regular international retreats with guest teachers. We also have a supportive Sangha family and a community of solitary retreaters. It’s a perfect place to enrich your spiritual progress no matter what level you are at.
Menorca itself is a biosphere reserve with protected natural habitats. It is rich in mystery and history with its caves, talaiots and beautiful virgin beaches. The centre is just a 20 minute drive from some of the most famous beaches on the island.
