What is a Meditation Retreat?

A meditation retreat is a period of time when we step back from our daily activities and let go of normal worries and concerns. In this way, we begin to discover the natural clarity and spaciousness of our mind. As we become more focused, we are able to deepen our practice of meditation easily.  We are pleased to offer several day and weekend retreats a year.

Let Go of Stress – Urban Retreat Surrey

March 31, 10am-12:30pm

Get away from your normal daily routine and enjoy teachings and meditations in the serenity and peace of Green Timbers Urban Forest.

Stress is a nearly universal experience of our busy, modern lives.  It robs us of our ability to enjoy our life and to experience peace and happiness.  Buddha’s timeless teachings offer a simple and yet profound alternative: come and learn practical, effective meditations for reducing stress and improving health and well-being.

With Gen Kelsang Delek, western Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Fraser Valley.
