Sunday Meditation for All

Come and discover meditation at the Dechen Chöling Shambhala Centre, near Limoges. This programme is free of charge and open to all, on the first Sunday of each month, from 10am to 5pm.

The programme is taught by an experienced meditation instructor. Participants who have never meditated before will receive meditation instruction. Meditators of all levels as well as Dechen Chöling staff, are welcome.

This day is coordinated by two volunteers from our local meditation group. Teachings and instruction are given in French. If you require translation into English, please inquire at [email protected]


The day is a mixture of meditation, presentations by the meditation instructor and group discussion.

  • Morning: instruction and practice, questions and discussion
  • Afternoon: sitting meditation, contemplative practice, walking meditation in the grounds of the chateau.


When we practice sitting quietly and following our breath, we enter into direct contact with our heart. By letting ourselves be just as we are, we begin to experience true friendliness towards ourselves.



You are cordially invited to have lunch at the centre, at the price of 14€. If you wish to have lunch with us, please register at least two days in advance at the link provided below.

Donations to the centre are also welcome.
