Kalyana-mittata Retreat: A Gathering of Beautiful Friends

Email us about program

Spiritual friendship, good companionship, good comradeship, are the whole of the holy life. (Upaḍḍha Sutta)

This gathering of friends is a 9 day residential retreat in which the tasks of daily life and Insight Dialogue become a single practice. We will investigate the teachings of the Buddha on the cushion, in the dwelling and in the marketplace, opening the container of practice to accommodate all.

The pandemic has been a lesson in impermanence and the health and safety of our participants will take precedence above all else. We will adhere to all Covid related rules and guidelines that are in place at the time of the retreat. We will require full vaccination and for the moment, mask wearing indoors. All participants will occupy single rooms. Conditions change.

Accommodation and meals are offered as full dana.
