KCC’s Month of Personal Retreat

KCC’s month of personal long retreat begins March 3, 2023.

The month of personal retreat is an excellent way to deepen one’s practice in the support of other community members. Being able to devote more time to meditation away from our habitually busy usual environs can be very inspiring and nurturing.
