December 26, 2016 - January 1, 2017

Aloka This program is part of one of our family retreats. During this program we have simultaneous retreats for parents, teens, tweens, and children. Learn more

Simplicity Retreats welcome all levels of experience, from beginners to veteran practitioners. We offer a thorough introduction to sitting and walking meditation, as well as an opportunity to deepen your practice through group discussions, personal time for study and reflection, nature walks, and exercises in contemplative arts.

Come for the entire time, or simply for a day or two-- the choice is yours. The flexible schedule allows you to find your own pace and activities, while keeping a daily practice of meditation, and enjoying the support of fellow attendees.

About the Holiday Programs at KCL
This program is a part of an exciting winter holiday family week at Karmê Chöling. The week is arranged so that parents, children, and teenagers can all participate in their own programs and enjoy time together on the beautiful, wintry land of Karmê Chöling. This is a lively week full of laughter, bustle, and the energy of children! 

We will come together as a community several times over the course of the week to celebrate and enjoy one another’s company, including an outdoor bonfire with the children and our annual New Year’s Eve Soirée on December 31st.
