Each year the Institute offers meditation retreats. Although open to anyone interested, the emphasis of the retreat is for people in the helping professions. The retreats are usually in silence.
Dana: The retreat fee covers residential costs and the travel expenses of the teachers. The teachings are offered freely according to the Buddhist tradition. Voluntary donations to support the teachers can be given separately at the end of the retreat.
NB: You do not have to be a Karuna student in order to join retreats. They are open to all – you just need experience / feel comfortable with silent retreats.
