Opening to How Things Are
Residential Meditation Retreat

Loyola House, Guelph ON
November 16 – 19, 2017

Taking refuge in silence on this weekend Insight Meditation retreat can deepen our practice by helping us open to knowing how things are through direct experience. The three characteristics of existence will be explored: the impermanence of all things, unsatisfactoriness, and the interdependence of all beings. Designed for returners and new practitioners who wish to engage in these core teachings that the Buddha taught as gateways to freedom.

This retreat includes meditation instructions and dharma talks as well as guided, sitting and walking meditations. There will be small group meetings, and the retreat will be supported with daily yoga sessions.
