About

The Ziji Gar is a Summer Outdoor Youth Retreat from 2nd to 10th July, 2017 at Dechen Chöling in France.


A group of young inspired people in their 20s and 30s will gather this summer to create a temporary outdoor community in a field near Dechen Chöling, the Dharma Place of Great Bliss.

With the inspiration to explore creating an enlightened society through setting up our own simple microcosm, we look at the idea that we as human beings inherently possess wisdom, compassion and goodness.

There will be camping, cooking, meditation, yoga, singing, participant led workshops, socially engaged practices and lots and lots of fun.
