Those working with us in the summer, set the tone and are the heartbeat of the camp. The fun, love, cooperation and harmony that we share become contagious to all.


Work Camp 2018   June 19th – July 21th

For more than twenty years, at an altitude of four thousand six hundred feet (1400 m) in the Ticino Alps, we build our meditation camp each summer with a group of about 25 volunteers. 

If you're interested in spirituality, feel like doing physical work in a group and love participating in the group process, this is a wonderful place to grow and be part of a community. 
We eat, work, sing, walk, talk and share, have sauna, dance, laugh, meditate and celebrate with each other. Whether you are young or old, man or woman, handyman or not, everyone is welcome!

Take Down 2018  August 18th – approx. September 4th

After the abundance of experiences in the Camp, it is a very nice process to deconstruct, pack and store everything, and leave the place to the true natives, the mountains, meadows, and cows.
