Dhagpo Kagyu Ling welcomes you thanks to a limited team of volunteers who assume most of the important tasks in terms of the daily functioning of the center.   In order to allow everyone to receive the teachings in the best possible conditions, your help is precious to us.

That's why we will ask for your support during your stay for some daily tasks.  This concerns the cleaning of your resting place, the kitchen of the trainees and the dining hall. This request for support will be presented to you in details by the teacher at the beginning of each training course.  We thank you in advance for your help.

Each year when registration opens, several hundred people contact the welcome office by phone and e-mail. Our team is made up of just four volunteers, and we do our best to reply!

In order to help make the registration period as harmonious as possible for us and for you, here are certain essential elements for successful communication during this time.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for attentively reading the following instructions and for your support in these efforts.
