Dark retreat

Tibetan Health & Education Center Men Ling provides in Estonia special
facilities for individual retreats and dark retreat- a solo retreat in a
space that is completely absent of light.

FUNCTION
As in Tibetan traditions it is often suggested to combine dark retreat
with various preliminary practices (1-5 weeks) our specially designed
retreat house can be used in multi functional way – retreats with
natural light and in total darkness with no optical stimulation.

LOCATION
Retreat dome is situated 15 km from closest town Pärnu, outside the
village Jõõpre in a quiet house with optimal conditions. It offers a
little kitchen –(refrigerator, oven, water heater, kitchen sink, ceramic
electric cooker), modern dry toilet, and a double door system for food
supply during darkness.
Men Ling countryside center is 130 km from Tallinn and 190 km from Riga,
both easily reached by various airlines. Transfer from airports can be
easily organized by bus or with Men Ling transport.

CONDITONS
The dome offers a little kitchen –(refrigerator, oven, water heater,
kitchen sink, ceramic electric cooker — all electric equipment is
