Kevala Retreat is a Dhamma refuge in southwestern Wisconsin that hosts individual and small group contemplative retreats. 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, and living out Buddhist ethics of healing, right relationship, ecological care, and social responsibility in the service of awakening to wholeness (kevala).
