Situated in a privileged enclave on the beautiful island of Menorca (declared a Biosphere reserve), IRC Menorca, International Retreat Centre, is an ideal place to have retreats, both alone and in a group.
Menorca IRC has been visited many times by our Spiritual Guide, the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, so it is a place with very good energy, very blessed. The center is in the middle of the island, surrounded by a forest of holm oaks, wild olive trees and pine trees. Along with the pure air and the natural beauty of the landscape, we highlight the clarity of its nights; when in the serene sky, free of clouds, you can contemplate the tranquil beauty of the stars and the moon. Whether you are looking for a few days of tranquility to reconnect with yourself, or if you wish to deepen your practice of meditation and Modern Buddhism, Menorca IRC is an ideal place. We offer solo retreats and national and international group retreats. Every year we invite international teachers from other centers to come and lead a retreat.
Everyone is welcome, do not miss this opportunity!
