Center closed until April 25, 2020

Dear friends,

we sadly have to announce the cancellation of all our meditation retreat scheduled until April 25th 2020.

We had to make this difficult decision, as you can imagine, because of the new government measures to contrast the spreading of the Covid-19. Since the whole country is in a state of emergency, and we have great concern for the health and wellbeing of all, we have decided to close down the centre at least until April 25th 2020.

We hope to see you soon here in Pian dei Ciliegi for a retreat, and wish you good health and peace of mind in this difficult (and hopefully limited ) situation.

Short report 2019

Dear friends,

we have come to the end of our retreat season, and the centre will close until the end of December. This year about 400 people have joined our Satipatthana Vipassana and Metta retreats, and the places available in almost all our retreats were taken. We apologize with those of you who weren’t able to take part in a retreat because it was full.

We’d like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have supported Pian dei Ciliegi through the years (and are still supporting us), in manyfold ways; it is also thanks to your mindful presence and dedication that Pian dei Ciliegi has become such a valuable place for the practice of the Dhamma, and an important reference point for many yogis.

Our 2020 retreat schedule will be published around the middle on November, and communicated through our website www.piandeiciliegi.it, our mailing list and our facebook page (sangha di pian dei ciliegi). We will open our retreat bookings the second week of January 2020.
