Aloka Children's Winter Retreat

with Katie Frank

December 26, 2018 - January 1, 2019

Our Annual winter retreat invites families to come together in the spacious, natural environment of Karmê Chöling to explore meditation and community. 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!

For Children Ages 3 - 9

Supported by a caring and nurturing staff who are grounded in their own meditation practice, children learn to expand their ability to be kind and compassionate to themselves and others. With both outdoor and indoor exploration, the children learn and grow through play, organized activities, arts, physical activity, and interacting with peers.
