Maitrea was founded in 2006 with the blessing of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The word Maitrea carries the meaning of "loving kindness". Our mission is to help people connect with and follow their Heart.

House of Personal Development 

The House of Personal Development offers experiential seminars that lead one to a deeper and fuller perception of oneself, awareness of one's mission and to finding harmony at the level of body, soul and mind.

With respect for nature

The whole concept of the reconstruction of the house was made by academic architect Oldřich Hozman. The designed structures, the materials used and the technical equipment are chosen to be health-friendly and as natural as possible.

The design is based on the principles of holistic architecture and incorporates the principles of building biology, geomancy and feng shui.  Based on the context of their influences, the zoning of the rooms in the house was chosen and the use of appropriate materials was determined.

Clay plasters are used throughout the house. The house is painted with natural casein paints coloured with purely natural pigments. The clay plasters also reduce the content of toxic substances in the air of the urban environment. 

What can you find at MAITREA house?

We opened the house in May 2008. It stands in the very heart of Prague, near the Old Town Square, Týn Cathedral and Dlouhá avenue. On the first floor of the house you will find two main seminar rooms. The house also offers additional attic rooms for meditation, massage and individual therapy. In the house you will also find our own Publishing house and in the next building a beautiful vegetarian restaurant.
