In the beautiful surroundings of KARA mountain cottage we organise each year a program for parents and children. Our aim is to create a space in which, together with children, we can explore and share confidence in basic goodness.


                                  Acharya David Hope will teach parents this year

a team of experienced practitioners-lectures will look after children.



Part of most days (usually mornings) parents can practise, contemplate, meditate and have discussions about the Shambhala teachings. The topic for this year is Creating an Enlightened Society, taught by Acharia David Hope. During this time the children have an organised program with the theme of The Kingdom of  Shambhala”. For the remainder of each day parents can play with their children and everything naturally blends together. Activities planned are games, art, trips, bonfires, cooking on an open fire, and meeting with Neuroses. There will also be plenty of spare time to improvise and space for inventive parents to start spontaneous activities, importantly time to relax. This year we would also like to focus on a special program for children ages 8 to 13.

The program is aimed at both Parents and Children ages  0 – 13.

The Summer Program runs from Friday 5th - Saturday 13th July
