72h Prostration Retreat


Again the time is coming for an amazing event – the 72 Hours Prostration Retreat in Karma Berchen Ling. Each spring brave and enthusiastic friends which still have not understood the meaning of the word limit gather in the mountains of Peloponnese in Greece.

The 72 hours of sweat and bliss are great to boost your practice to reach the 111,111 prostrations. If you have already reached that goal, you can inspire and support your friends on the way or even start your 2nd, 3rd etc. Ngondro.

In 2019, the prostration retreat starts at Wednesday 01.05., 18:00 with an introduction for the practice and the retreat by a Diamond Way teacher. At 20:00 sharp we will start with the prostrations and there will be always somebody doing prostrations for the next 72 hours till Saturday 04.05., 20:00.

The price for the accommodation and meals is € 54.
