Karma: A Buddhist Perspective on Values
Apr 25 @ 4:00 pm – Apr 28 @ 2:30 pm

This retreat is open to all adults who want a space to play and create, while at the same time exploring profound Buddhist teachings and connecting with a loving community. Over the course of the 4 days there will be art, meditations, teachings, nature walks, discussions, a fire puja (a Buddhist ritual for cleansing negative energy) music, laughter and relaxed time to just be. This is a time to disconnect from technology and take a break from our busy lives. We encourage you to leave all work and outside pressures behind, and treat yourself to a rejuvenating weekend!


Karma is the force of cause and effect: all actions, positive, negative and neutral, have an affect of the same. So, if we do something kind and generous, we will, at some point, experience kindness and generosity in return. However, if we act with anger and cruelty, we will experience the same back. This is not a judgment, there is no all powerful being doling our punishment and reward, it is simply the natural way phenomena occur, similar to gravity. During this retreat we will discuss different ways of living a life in accordance to values of loving kindness and compassion.

This is the second retreat in our series covering what are called the 6 perfections, which are guidelines for living a life in service not only to ourselves, but to all living beings. Don’t worry if you missed our first retreat, you will not need to have attended that one to enjoy this retreat!

Space is limited to 20 people, so sign up now!
