The Golden Bowl Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of assisting people to awaken to the truth of their being. We sponsor Buddhist-inspired meditation retreats that cultivate personal and community wholeness, connection with the natural world, and deep creative freedom.

Golden Bowl programs are accessible to people from any economic means who are committed to taking responsibility for their psychological and spiritual health. We give back to communities by empowering our participants to teach what has been learned.

Golden Bowl sponsored retreats and teachings integrate body, mind, and spirit through immersion in the natural world, contemplative practices, psychological unfolding, and the teachings of the dharma. Tory Capron, the principle teacher, often partners with other teachers and organizations to lead Golden Bowl sponsored retreats.

The Golden Bowl Foundation was founded in 2005 with a vision of creating access to the dharma for people of all economic levels. Since that time, many scholarships have been awarded for retreats and individual work. The Golden Bowl Foundation relies on donations from individuals who believe in the importance of the Buddha's teachings and living sanely.
