Our busy life absorbs us and leaves no time for ourselves. At the IRC Menorca we offer you the possibility of making personal retreats to reconnect with yourself and find the inner peace you desire.

You can choose the length of your stay and the type of retreat you want, adapted to your needs and level. We have retreats where you can disconnect from your worries, give yourself a break and combine it with a holiday. We have specific retreats to insert into Buddhist meditation and other retreats to deepen your practice of kadampa meditation.

You will have at your disposal at all times qualified staff for help and advice as well as a library. Just find a few days in your diary and give yourself a peaceful holiday.

We are waiting for you!


“Menorca IRC has been visited many times by our Spiritual Guide, the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, so it is a place with good energy, very blessed and protected. It is surrounded by a forest of holm oaks so the silence is resounding and the walking paths beautiful and peaceful, some of one them with sea view lookout points. 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.”



In retreat you give yourself the opportunity to rest in depth and forget all your daily problems. A retreat is a space of tranquility, an oasis of peace in your life that helps you discover important aspects of your own existence. For example, you will see how your meditation practice improves. By cultivating positive thoughts as you develop your attention, memory and concentration, you will experience the extraordinary inner peace that lies within your own mind. This inner peace is the real treasure to discover when you make a retreat; it is the supreme medicine that heals our unhappiness and that of others. Take the precious treasure of inner peace to your daily life and share it with your family and friends. Discover Menorca International Retreat Center, a jewel in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.
