A robust practice includes study, contemplation, and meditation—and service to others. Dekeling is committed to making all these offerings, as well as one-on-one mentoring, continuously available. Most of our offerings are open to all students, but a few have prerequisites or permissions (you will find prerequisites listed in the event description if they apply.)
At the present, all of our retreats are conducted on Zoom. As soon as it is possible to resume face-to-face retreat attendance, we will do so for those who have been vaccinated.
