Centre Visit KMC Geneva

(pour la version française cliquez ici)


Buddha Green Tara is a feminine manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all Buddhas. She is known for her ability to quickly eliminate our internal and external obstacles.

Tara helps and protects us, just as a mother helps and protects her child. Many practitioners have managed to heal themselves through the practice of the green tare of physical or mental illness.

During this retreat we will learn in the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of the Valais mountains to receive the help of Buddha Tara, to protect ourselves and others and to be like them, free from all fears!

It is not necessary to have the authorization from the Green Tara, but it is recommended that our practice be stronger (Gen Kelsang Jikgyob will authorize the Green Tara at the KMC Geneva on February 16 & 17, 2019. For more information , click here).

Everyone is welcome!


Gen Kelsang Jikgyob is a communicative and energetic teacher and is much appreciated for her great kindness. Through her light way of teaching she gives encouragement and helps everyone with advice on the spiritual path. Her teachings are known for their clarity, freshness and relevance in our modern busy life.

Language and Translation

This course will be held in French and if needed translated into German and/or English, however we try to help to organise more translations if possible.


Kailash IRC is a charity and the Retreat Centre is run by a few volunteers. It is also fun to connect with fellow retreaters while helping out with small tasks. For this reason every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc). and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
