In June and July 2016, new and beautiful ārāma Karuṇā Sevena in the Czech Republic welcomed the first lay practitioners (upāsika, upāsaka). They had the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the safe and calming environment of the ārāma. These meditators could let go of their every day lives for a moment and practice according to the Buddha's teaching on the path to nibbāna. See pictures here (and longer photo album here.)
The ārāma will be opening again after the vassa period. More information about November 2016 retreats will be coming soon. Daily schedule and Terms of stay in ārāma Karuṇā Sevena will be given both, in Czech and English.
