Regenerative Gardening and Meditation: Gardening to Stabilize the Climate at Karme Choling

Do you long to live in harmony with nature and feel more connected to the land? For this interactive two week gardening intensive we ask you to bring your particular questions and challenges about how to develop and fortify your home garden or landscape. With daily meditation and contemplations in the forest and garden, we'll examine our human role in nature and examine ways to enhance the resiliency and beauty of our environment. Our luscious Karmê Chöling garden and surrounding landscape will serve as an example and training ground but central to our discussions will be how you can incorporate Regenerative Methods in your garden. We will be limiting registration to eight participants, so sign up early.
