Everything about this silent retreat was designed to make it accessible for everyone. We wanted to remove any barriers for those of us living busy schedules, who find it difficult to find the time to get some silence and equanimity in our lives. So we kept the location close and the costs as low as possible. This in-city retreat is also great if you’ve never been on a meditation retreat before and want to get a feeling for what prolonged periods of silence is like. Lastly, even if you’ve meditated for years and just need the opportunity to get some extra cushion time in, it’ll be a solid weekend.
Theme: The Path to Liberation – Living with Presence and Meaning in the World
Price: $75 and that includes a vegetarian lunch on Saturday.
Location: FCJ Christian Life Centre – 219 19 Ave SW
- Friday, November 18 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm
- Saturday, November 19 – 9:00am – 5:00pm. For those looking for additional meditation time, you can stay for the optional evening session from 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Each night, you go home and sleep in your own bed. You are encouraged, but not required, to remain in silence for the entire weekend. If this causes you some anxiety, no sweat, we can figure something out. Meditation (including retreats) should never be a cause for more stress in our already stressful lives.
