Activities and program of Karuṇā Sevena

Dearest friends, 

for obvious reasons, we are canceling all Karuṇā Sevena activities until further notice and for those of you who have already applied for retreats, we will propose alternative dates as soon as the crisis situation in

our country improves.

We wish everyone peaceful days,

may you all be happy and well. 

Lots mettā.
