Program Overview Amsterdam

From September 2021 onwards, the center will reopen for onsite participation. Because of Covid-19, we request everyone to only register for onsite participation if you're vaccinated, have tested negatively or have already recovered from a Covid-19 infection. We won't check this, but we trust in everyone's sense of responsibility in this. For further explanation about this policy, please see this letter.

Please register in advance for courses at amsterdam@maitreya.nl. Almost all activities are available via Zoom and there are only a few seats available in the center itself. For the Zoom links or to find out whether you can attend in person, please contact us at amsterdam@maitreya.nl.
