Our mountain chalet in Fideris, in the Swiss canton of Graubünden (not far from Zurich).
The chalet is used for seminars, and is in the process of being converted into a temple.
The chalet is almost 3000 feet above sea level.
One of the nearby mountain lakes – just a short (steep) walk from the chalet.
Our shrine. This will all be moved up into the new temple space, when it’s ready.
The seminars are open to everyone (and are a lot of fun).
In 2011, a beautiful murthi of Lord Ganesh was installed...
...and the foundations of the new temple were sanctified with a yagam ceremony.
The chalet is closed to the public throughout the winter, as the snow gets extremely heavy.
Devotees make occasional visits during the winter months to maintain the chalet.
In the spring, the devotees organise seva weekends to chop firewood.
As in Skanda Vale, all the festivals are celebrated, and the chalet gets decorated.
The seminars are very practical and down to earth.
And also quite inspiring!
very year we hold spiritual seminars high up in the Swiss Alps. They’re an opportunity to ask questions, learn, share and find out how to bring the experience of the Divine into your everyday living.
The seminars are run in partnership with the Swiss Association of Skanda Vale, and hosted in a mountain chalet that is in the process of being converted into a temple. The grace that manifests, coupled with the natural beauty of the mountains, can help restore your vitality and peace of mind, leaving you reinvigorated and empowered to make significant changes in your life.
Seminars are open to everyone, and voluntary donations are offered to cover board and lodging. If you would like to attend, please get in touch. Thanks!
