Usually we start every kind of communication with a respectful bow, because this one little gesture keeps reminding us that that the person we are dealing with at this moment is currently the most important person for us. Staying in the presence and being aware of what is Here and Now: In the moment where life happens and where changes can take place.

The Shaolin Temple Europe is eager to share the wisdom, which has been developed since more then 1519 years to help the people in this modern society. Many approaches, training and teaching methods have direct effect on the 3 treasures of Shaolin: Mind, Heart and Body. The holistic approach is based upon daily observation and development of the monks and masters of the Shaolin Temple.

We would be happy if we could inspire you to explore this uncommon journey with us and to learn more about this ancient culture and way of living.

Monastery on Time


For „monastery on time“ (Kloster auf Zeit) we have certain entry dates, that can be seen below. It is only possible to join / start monastery on time on these dates. If you have problems understanding german, please feel free to contact us at anytime. Our monastery is also english speaking. 

All retreats in the Shaolin Temple Europe:

Retreat means that you join the life at the monastery for one weekend (3 days) or one week (6 days) together with the community of the Shaolin Temple Europe. As compared to "monastery on time", a retreat is held under a specific topic and content. If you like to learn more about Shaolin Kung Fu, a Kung Fu Retreat is right for you. If you are more interested in learning and practicing Qi Gong, then a Qi Gong Retreat might be your choice. Please have a look at the variety of retreats to choose from.

Dates in 2022

Due to the very high demand in recent years, the places for the temporary monastery as well as for the retreats are booked out very quickly.

Therefore, please inquire about the currently still available dates for the next year 2022 directly at the monastery office.

We are speaking several languages here at the monastery, every guest and Shaolin friend is welcome.


We're looking forward to welcoming you.
