KCC’s Month of Personal Retreat

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

Personal retreat is an excellent way to deepen one’s practice in the support of other community members. During this month, people can sign up for stays ranging from a weekend up to the whole month. Everyone will keep the same practice schedule but will practice on their own.
