A magical time in Menorca

Menorca IKRC had the pleasure of hosting Nagarjuna KMC, from Northamptonshire in the UK, for a retreat guided by Kadam Bridget Heyes entitled "Calming the mind: a Buddhist approach". The serene landscapes of Menorca IKRC proved to be the perfect backdrop for this spiritual journey.

A magical place to do retreat

IKRC Menorca was founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 1981, the first Kadampa center to be established outside of the UK. Venerable Geshe-la has blessed the center with his presence many times and has given numerous teachings and empowerments there.

In 1999 Venerable Geshe-la  opened the Kadampa Temple of Menorca and inaugurated it in 2001.

In 2012 the center was transformed into an International Kadampa Retreat Center, and in 2016 a major restoration of the retreat house was completed. It now has ten rooms with private bathroom, air conditioning, kitchen and dining room, as well as terraces and a garden.
