Merigar is a place immersed in nature, located in the municipality of Arcidosso, in the province of Grosseto. It is situated where the slopes of Mount Amiata meet those of Mount Labbro and its nature reserve.

Here, since 1981, people interested in the study and practice of Dzogchen, one of the oldest teachings of the Tibetan spiritual tradition, gathered around Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. In Tibetan, Merigar means “residence of the mountain of fire,” symbolically signifying “abode of energy.”
