We will also ask you to adopt simple health safety measures such as physical distancing, strict handwashing and so on. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Welcoming you in Lerab Ling

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Lerab Ling. In order to ensure safe hygiene measures in all parts of Lerab Ling and to respect the world health regulations, we have to limit the number of participants to each retreat to 150 participants.

Our highest priority is to make sure that you enjoy your retreat while ensuring your health and well-being as well as that of the Lerab Ling community and everyone coming to Lerab Ling. Our ability to welcome you (and the number of people we are allowed to have onsite) will entirely depend on the French health regulations in effect at the time of the event.
