Retreats


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.
