• Meet & Greet & Retreat Info

    A lot of people have signed up to our group over the past couple of months and since we won’t have formal meditation sessions until the fall, I thought y’all might like a chance to meet some of us sooner. We can answer questions about our group, about meditation, and about Buddhism.

    For existing members, hope you can also come out and catch up with us!

    ALSOOOOO – we are having a retreat at the end of August, so if you’d like to find out more about that we can answer those questions too.

    We will have reservations at Limericks Pub on Wednesday August 2, from 7:00-8:30pm. Ask for the Meditation Group. Drop in anytime, stay as long as you’d like!

    You can sign up on our Meetup site, or just show up.

  • August 2017 Meditation Retreat

    Registration is now officially open for our August Retreat!

    This year we will be hosting the retreat at the Folk Tree Lodge, a short 45 minute drive from Calgary but a world away from the big city.

    This retreat is open to new and more “seasoned” meditators alike. It’s a great opportunity for anyone looking to delve deeper in their practice.

    This is a “silent’ retreat – the participants are asked not to talk during their stay. Don’t worry, the silence doesn’t start as soon as you get there – there will be dinner and an opening ceremony at which the teachers will explain what to do with the silence and when to start. There will also be times set aside for one on one talks with the teachers.

    Retreats provide a fantastic environment to get away from the noise and distractions of everyday life. Silence is a beautiful thing and can help you connect with your inner wisdom. The theme for this year’s retreat will be “The Art of Letting Be”.

    We have also tried to keep costs down as much as possible. The cost should be around $300-$450, depending on what accommodation type people choose. However, all participants will pay the same price regardless of room type (except for Early Bird Discount). All rooms are shared but if you need a private room for medical reasons we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

    Early Bird Pricing is available until August 14. Early bird price will be $60 less than the regular price. To receive the early bird price you will need to provide a $200 deposit by August 14. If you need to cancel after paying this deposit you will be refunded only if we can fill your spot.  If price is an issue, let us know and we will try to work something out for you.

    Delicious vegetarian dinners will be served everyday and are included in the price. You will be responsible for your own breakfasts and lunches. There are fridges, dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, and microwaves.

    Please plan for a 5:30pm arrival. Dinner and orientation to start at 6:00pm on Friday. The retreat will go until 11:00am on Monday Morning.
