ONE OF OUR AIMS is to provide the people of the Greater Toronto Area access to Buddhist meditation and other tools to cultivate meaningful, peaceful, happy lives. KMCC’s calm, positive energy is the perfect environment to engage in retreats. Morning silence, easy access to literature and wonderful statues of Buddhas are all favourable conditions contributing to the success of these retreats.

Many of the retreats listed below are part of the Teacher Training Program. Students in this program make the commitment to attend particular sessions as a means to enhance their personal experience of these profound methods which contribute to their training for sharing Dharma with others.

Everyone is welcome to join some retreats which emphasize various aspects of the Buddhist path.

Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat

Nov 13-17


We all wish to be happy and experience peace of mind every day. This depends upon spiritual realizations which in turn depend upon creating certain inner conditions such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit, and receiving blessings.

In this retreat, we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit, or positive energy, by making mandala offerings and receiving blessings by engaging in Guru Yoga practice.

This is a special practice that enables us to strengthen our connection with our Spiritual Guide.

Gen Chögyan will be giving teachings and guiding meditations during some of the sessions.


Gen Kelsang Chögyan is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada (KMCC). She has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for many years, under the guidance of her teacher, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Gen Chögyan presents Buddha’s teachings in a practical and accessible way for everyone to apply this profound wisdom in their daily life. Through her sincere example, she inspires many students to apply joyful effort in their practice of Dharma.
