Meditation Retreats and Kum Nye Training FAQs


Do I have to be a Karuna student to attend a Kum Nye retreat?

No all of our retreats are open to anybody.

What is Kum Nye?

Kum Nye is Tibetan embodiment practice from the Nyingmapa tradition of Tibet. This practice at Karuna is part of our awareness practices. Karuna has incorporated Kum Nye into its teachings and trainings for the last 20 years

Can I have a single room.

Retreatants share rooms with between one and three other members of the retreat. Rooms are same gender only. Although occasionally challenging we find that the sharing of rooms on retreat can help foster a sense of community of Sangha.

Are the Retreats in silence?

Yes our retreats are held in silence. Teaching staff will help you orientate to this if this is new for you.

Are Retreats free?

The teaching costs for our retreats is given on a donation basis. The cost of accommodation and meals is paid for in a fee.
