Mindfulness Retreat in South Africa

Join us in April 2015 for a mindfulness retreat in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh at the Khula Dhamma Retreat Centre and Eco Farm (www.khuladhamma.org) in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Along with the meditation centre, we are creating a permaculture-based food forest to feed our community and visitors. We have built thatched guest huts from wattle and daub and have renovated the dairy into a lovely big meditation hall, equipped with mats and cushions and a lovely view!
