Sunyata Family Camp 10th August – 14th August
August 10 @ 3:00 pm - August 14 @ 5:00 pm
This retreat will be an opportunity to experience the space to spend time with your family in a mindful way and reflect on your practice in a supportive community environment
The camp aims to create a supportive environment for parents to practice Dharma and apply mindfulness methods in everyday family life.
The camp will be an opportunity for families to support and learn from each other, to explore how to apply the teachings of the Buddha in family life.
It is also a chance to rest and enjoy spending time with the members of your family without the complications of the world.
Families will be given the space to relax and enjoy some time away from their busy worlds in a beautiful setting. There will be lots of opportunities for parents to practice on their own, as well as shared daily practices.
Families of all ages, sizes and kinds are welcome!
Camping facilities and dorm space available.
This retreat is offered on a donation basis. There is no fixed charge to attend . This is influenced by the Buddha’s teaching on the cultivation of generosity or dana
This means that anyone who wished to attend a retreat at Sunyata may do so regardless of their financial circumstances.
We are asked sometimes for guidance regarding donations and we calculate that €35 per Adult per and €20 per Child per day will meet the running costs of the centre for this retreat. However this is a guide only and if one cannot afford this amount then there is no obligation to do so. Equally, if one wishes to give more than the guided amount, then one is welcome to do so. All donations are anonymous.
Nobody involved in the running of the retreat receives any payment and all funds will go directly to the upkeep of the centre.
