Open Call for Eastern European Sangha artists

Merigar East announces the opportunity of an artistic project based on sponsorship. So, you can either share your creative idea to the community or support it by donating.

We are selecting proposals from our Eastern European Sangha of an artistic installation/workshop or performance. It would be representing our gar for the 10 years of Dzamling Gar Festival (December 3rd).  

We invite all performers, musicians, artists in any field to participate in this important celebration in our community, an opportunity to present their work to the public.

The members of Merigar East and its Lings, we invite you to get involved!

The project can be any form of interactive art/performance, connected to Merigar East’s story, natural environment, to the places’ energy, to its projects and activities. Moreover, it can be related to an episode you remember fondly that took place here. Over the years, hundreds of people visited ME during retreats with our Master. Everyone was cheerful and relaxed in this place during the transmission of teachings.

The artist will display the piece/installation/performance at the 10 Years Dzamling Gar celebration in the house shared between Merigar East and West (terrace or garden). Imagine an interactive, intercultural experience that people can admire in the making, get involved in, be attracted to see.

Merigar East and its Lings members, we encourage you to apply!

The fund will cover for the travel, the cost of the material for the piece/workshop and the accommodation in Dzamling Gar, related to the event. Moreover, we offer an optional one-week residency in Merigar East, on the spot, in October. Depending on the donations and on the proposals, we are hoping to fully cover the cost of the artistic work. We can build together a definite budget in one month.

We are open to your creative ideas! Apply by the 15th of October by writing a one-page proposal, describing your idea, comprising your short bio and a budget draft.

Or support this long-term project by donating.

Summer Personal Retreats

Have you considered how much progress you would make in your practice if you dedicated time to a personal retreat?

Here at Merigar East we will have a quiet summer, because the Gonpa renovation phase 2 – Painting the ceiling has been postponed to next year.
You can come here and do your personal retreat in a silent place, close to the seaside, but most importantly, in a place that has been especially created and empowered by practice.
We offer the facility of a silent and alone retreat, in out wooden caravan, situated in the back of the gar. Our caretakers can provide you with what you need so that you do not distract yourself during your retreat and they can make sure no-one is disturbing you.
You can also have a retreat while living in our house with other people, if you do not need to be completely alone.

If you wish to retreat, please write to us, telling us:
– The period
– The practice you want to carry out
– Your daily schedule preferences
– The services you would need to be supported in your retreat (e.g. food, shopping, being completely alone, transportation to/from village).

Our prices depend on the services you need but we make sure that we are very accessible to people who want to practice and especially to IDC members. Sustaining and meritorious members are granted all the discounts foreseen by the IDC agreements!

Looking forward to support you in your personal practice!
