About the Center

It was the wish of Shamar Rinpoche to establish a meditation centre in this area of Germany. Dortmund is the largest city by area and population in the Ruhr Area. It is known as Westphalia’s “green metropolis”. Nearly half the municipal territory consists of waterways, woodland, agriculture and green spaces with spacious parks.

The centre was founded in November 2011. We meet once a week on Thursdays at 7 pm with a program of studying, contemplating and meditating for about two hours. Look for actual info on our local website.
