…deepening wisdom, cultivating peace

Kevala Retreat is a Buddha-Dhamma refuge in southwestern Wisconsin that hosts individual and small group self-retreats for mature students of Buddha-Dhamma. Our roots are in the Thai Theravada tradition of Buddhism and we are inspired by Suan Mokkh, the “Garden of Liberation” founded by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu in southern Thailand. We are dedicated to providing a natural setting for personal retreat and study, in an environment of contemplative silence, solitude and simplicity. Kevala Retreat operates on a donation basis according to the traditional Buddhist practice of dana (generosity) and is supported by guests, and others who appreciate Kevala’s existence.
