Self-Guided Retreat for Parents
February 24 - 26
While your teen is participating in Level I for Teens with Shastri Kranz, immerse yourself in practice and connect with the land. Parents have the freedom to decide their own schedules and practice activities.
Those who have an existing practice may join the Karme Choling staff in the Shambhala Shrineroom in the mornings (9:00am to 10:15am), evenings (5:30pm to 6:30pm), or any time in between. If you are a Werma practitioner, you have the added benefit of using the Sadhana Shrineroom.
If you are new to meditation and would like initial instruction, please let us know so we can schedule that for you. We also invite you to take advantage of exploring the land on our many trails.
The cost of this self-guided retreat is $50/day (for Saturday & Sunday) plus accommodations. Please arrive before dinner at 6:30pm on February 24th. Your teen's program begins that night at 7:30pm. The Level I for Teens program ends around 5:00pm on February 26th.
