To benefit society, it is essential that we come to know our own true nature as individuals. At Dewachen, Tibetan retreat Masters will openly offer knowledge, practices, and silent solitary retreat trainings that have been passed down for thousands of years. These practices train individuals to recognize unshakeable compassion and equanimity, that are unhindered by external circumstances in the world.
“Global peace is an individual responsibility” - H.H 14th Dalai Lama
Every culture is a unique expression of what it means to be human and alive.At Dewachen, we will build upon 10 years of experience hosting intercultural gatherings with indigenous wisdom-keepers from all around the world.Ancestral wisdom and diverse voices are essential keys to solving many of our global problems.
There are many paths, and one essence.
We are all part of an interconnected web of life. Every action impacts the whole. At Dewachen, we build upon extensive experience in regenerative stewardship by building habitat through agroforestry, edible landscapes, watershed conservation, waste management, natural building techniques…. and most importantly…. cultivating the mindset that sustains it all.
Regeneration is…. “life creating conditions for life.”
