Kailash IRC (a branch of Kadampa Meditation Centre Switzerland)
All bookings must be made online via the Kailash IRC website (www.kailashirc.org) We do not accept bookings made by letter, email or over the phone. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Bookings will be confirmed by email once we have received a 25% deposit of the whole course fee and your completed booking form online. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.
Before making your booking, please read the following information in order to decide what option to book:
- Option 1: Flexible Retreat = Course only.
Please choose this option if you would like:
– to come after the introduction of the retreat on the first day,
– or to leave before the end of the retreat,
– or to go away and return during the retreat,
– or to have a special diet other than vegetarian or vegan.
- Option 2: Strict Retreat = Course, accommodation and meals at Kailash IRC.
Please choose this option if:
– you arrive on the first day of the retreat for the introduction and leave on the last day of the retreat,
– and you will stay the whole time during the retreat week without interruptions,
– and you have no other special diet other than vegan or vegetarian.
If you choose Option 1, please see the list of accommodations for rent in Törbel.
In order to secure your booking, you need to pay the 25% deposit in Swiss Francs. Only debit/credit card payments via the Kailash IRC website are accepted. On the day of arrival you will need to pay the remaining 75% of your fee in Swiss Francs. This payment can be made on site by debit/credit cards or by cash in Swiss Francs. (Swiss Post cards are not accepted, sorry for the inconvenience.)
Please wait until you have received a confirmation email before making any travel arrangements.
