Memorial Day Family Retreat

This year, KCC’s annual family retreat over Memorial Day weekend is open to all sangha members who would like to attend. There will still be a family focus, but this will be a time for everyone to enjoy a relaxed and fun time together at our beautiful retreat land. Lama Eric plans to be there! The weekend will be loosely structured to allow for rest, family time and community connecting. Some of the potential activities include taking a wildflower walk with Vicki Fields or creating a sacred nature mandala with Lama Kathleen.
