Latest COVID-19 Update

Marpa House temporary closure


Dear friends,

We hope you’re keeping peaceful and healthy in these challenging times. In light of the current situation with COVID-19 Marpa House will remain closed to visitors, guests and retreatants to continue to protect the wellbeing of our community.  All of our courses and group retreats up to the end of July are postponed.

Therefore please do not come to the House for the time being. We will update you immediately when the situation changes.

Please be assured that the staff at Marpa House are continuing the daily meditation practice sessions and we hope you will be able to join us ‘virtually’ for online pujas and teachings – details below.  In addition to our own programs, our sister centre at Todtmoos in Germany is hosting on line pujas and teachings, many in English.  Please contact them at if you wish to be enrolled on their email list (also in English).

Meanwhile we also continue to dedicate our prayers for the benefit of all beings everywhere, and in particular those affected by the virus at this time.

If you have other questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Marpa House Secretary.

Thank you for your understanding, and may you, your loved ones and beings everywhere all be happy, healthy and safe.

With love,

The Trustees
