In the Southern World is a sacred place of Dharma where the New Sun is shinning.
The blessing of Dharma that was on the roof of the world they now realise.
May this same truth return to the land surrounded by snowcapped-mountains.

Karma Guen is located in the mountains, 10km from the nearest town. Karma Guen is a camping site, so please be prepared for camping condition, e.g. outdoor showers and toilets 😉 Please bring a tent, sleeping bag, and any equipment and personal things you might need for this time.
Summer in southern Spain is full of sun, so be prepared for hot weather and sun. Please check the weather forecast for Vélez-Málaga a few days before you start your trip to Karma Guen to check your equipment.
We are expecting a lot of friends coming for this course. Therefore we recommend that you use our shuttle service directly from Malaga airport to Karma Guen and back. This is the easiest door to door service and you can avoid the crowded parking at Karma Guen.
We look forward to see you soon in southern Spain!
