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.

Please contact us with any questions.

Comfortable shared dormitory accommodations are available. Contact registration@kadampa.ca to book accommodation for your retreat.


Don’t just do something, sit there!

pic-2.jpg

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we shall be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we shall experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we shall find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.

Join this urban retreat and start your path to happiness now.

pic-3.jpg

We want to be happy all the time. How can we do this? We can do this through training in meditation because meditation makes our mind peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful we are happy all the time, even if our external conditions are poor.

This retreat is ideal for newcomers, those familiar with Lamrim, and those wishing to rediscover the magic of meditation.

 

Registration opens soon.
