More About Liberation Park:
Liberation Park, is a young Dhamma refuge in southwestern Wisconsin, with roots in the Thai Theravada tradition of Buddhism and inspired by Suan Mokkh, the ‘radically conservative’ Garden of Liberation founded by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu in southern Thailand. Liberation Park is dedicated to fostering communities of liberatory practice; providing a natural setting for personal retreat and study; and living out Buddhist ethics of healing, right relationship, ecological care, and social responsibility (more).
Santikaro and his wife, Jo Marie, moved to this beautiful 70 acre valley in Wisconsin’s picturesque driftless region in 2006 and have been slowly building, through volunteer labor & donations, facilities for practice, study, and simple living. Visitors enjoy the beauty of land, water, grasses, trees & flowers, birds, quiet, & practice throughout the year. A four-season hermitage for retreatants is near completion and funds are being raised for a multipurpose Guest House.
