The retreat center, "The Meditation Garden", located in Brittany

The Meditation Garden is an area conceived by His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa for individual retreats. It comprises a temple, the Lama Lakhang, containing 300 statues of Masters, and eight cottages for anyone who wishes to stay in solitary retreat for a few days, weeks or months.

Sketch of His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa
In 1994, His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa had the dream of a meditation garden comprising 8 small cottages and a temple, for which he drew a plan. He entrusted Drubpön Ngawang with the care to achieve this dream.

These houses are currently all occupied by residents. They are temporarily unavailable for individual retreats.
