Longing, Belonging, Responding @ Dharma Gaia (NZ)

$200 – $250

Longing, Belonging, Responding

Wake Up retreat

We invite you to join us for a weekend of exploring the many ways to nourish our happiness, with walks in the forest, moving our bodies, cooking together, making art, singing and sitting by the fire, and sharing our stories. We will explore how to bring playfulness into our way of living and responding to the world and sharing this way of being with others. Together, we will build a community of young people who can touch the sweetness and compassion in themselves, and therefore the world.

This retreat is based in Buddha Dharma and the 5 precepts. We welcome both those who practice Buddhism and those new to the practice.

However, a cancellation within 10 days of the retreat starting date is non-refundable.
