Mindful working (in summer)

During the retreat season Kalachakra Kalapa Center needs a period of cleaning and repair work.

, we cultivate our mind with the help of meditation while externally cleaning the house and the garden with the help of a broom and other tools. This will create the basis for the development of the loving and wise nature of our mind. Moreover, we prepare a clear and inviting environment for all those who seek repose at Kalachakra Kalapa.

In this retreat we will experience the union of spiritual practice and manual work. At the same time we contribute to enhancing the attractiveness of the center. Everyone who wants to learn and practice meditation in everyday life, as well as people with technical skills and healthy common sense are welcome.
