Residential Meditation Retreats

Take the time to enter wholeheartedly into practice in a dedicated setting. Multi-day retreats are an opportunity to physically and psychologically get away from our everyday routines, and to suffuse the body/mind with Dharma.

Our multi-day residential retreats are conducted either at Chapin Mill Retreat Center, Batavia, New York, or St. John’s Convent & Guest House, North Toronto. See the individual listings for the location of each retreat.

Please familiarize yourself with the Retreat Guidelines (in the sidebar) before you attend a retreat.

Podcasts of some Dharma talks from previous retreats can be found online.

We welcome everyone to participate in a safe and respectful meditation environment regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, or age. To this end, all are encouraged to approach the teachers or board members with any requests for accommodation, or other concerns about well being during practice.

Scholarships are available for most of our retreats; please speak to one of the teachers.
