Who we are
Albagnano Healing Meditation Centre is located near Bée in the province of Verbania on Lake Maggiore. Overlooking the suggestive panorama of the lake, Albagnano is immersed in pine and chestnut woods at an altitude of 600 metres on the edge of the Val Grande national park.
Tibetan Master and Healer T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche inaugurated the Healing and Meditation Centre in 1999. He has been living in Albagnano since then, bringing together a community of people who share an interest in spirituality and wish to live in harmony with nature, carrying out numerous projects that contribute to revitalising the village and rural culture.
The Centre, of Tibetan Buddhist Mahayana Vajrayana tradition, welcomes everyone who is interested in regenerating and healing the energies of body and mind, and developing their human potential through ancient spiritual and healing methods.
Courses are held on Buddhist philosophy, psychology and meditation, and the meditative techniques of NgalSo Tantric Self Healing.
The Centre welcomes people who wish to undertake spiritual retreats in a pure environment.
We offer individual consultations, ancient Himalayan medical traditions, therapies for physical and mental wellbeing, Reiki, Yoga, Indian and Tibetan astrology, art therapy and other activities to develop personal qualities, increase happiness and inner peace.
The Centre also organises humanitarian aid for Himalayan countries, pilgrimages to the sacred places of Buddhism and inter-religious meetings for world peace.
