Buchinger Whilhelmi at Lake Constance in Germany has introduced a series of mental health programmes themed around mindfulness, meditation and improving one’s mental clarity.

For these mind focused retreats, the renowned German fasting clinic will draw on the expertise of visiting practitioner Lharampa Tenzin Kalden – a Buddhist monk and meditation instructor – as well as resident specialist Dr Anne Brunner. Guests will be supported by the team’s counsellors, therapists and personal trainers who will lead regular mindfulness walks through the stunning countryside surrounding Lake Constance.

Two routes to improved mental health

Meditation and Tibetan Lu Jong Yoga with a Buddhist monk


Buchinger Wilhelmi has introduced ‘Mindfulness Meditation Weeks’ with Lharampa Tenzin Kalden, a Buddhist monk and meditation instructor who was born in Tibet, studied at the Sera Monastic University in South India for 17 years and graduated in the five great sciences of Buddhism. He was awarded the title of Rabjampa and achieved the highest scholastic title of Lharampa.


The week-long programme includes meditation and Tibetan Lu Jong Yoga for the five elements, mindfulness meditation and walking meditation, Buddhist psychology for harmony and health, healing mantras and exercises to cleanse one’s chakra derived from Tibetan Buddhism help to protect against stress and burnout.
