Book Club


Join the Lhagsam Book Club! We are a relaxed and easy-going group, we love to read and discuss.

Book club membership is open to anyone who is interested to meet and discuss the books we read.

Please see below for the dates and the book for each gathering. We selected these books collectively for 2021. The list includes a wide array of genres surrounding Buddhism, spirituality and mind.

The meeting place is currently online, conducted via zoom. Once our physical centre is reopened, we will meet at the centre with the possibility of having zoom session for those who can’t join us in Zürich. You are welcome to join as many times as you like or also just once.

Register here, and we will send you the zoom link before the meeting.
