Teachings of Silence
A retreat and fundraiser to benefit The Centre for Mindfulness Studies
This retreat was created for clinicians to experience the value of extended periods of silence as well as to enhance their mindfulness-teaching skills and deepen their personal practice. Silent retreats allow us to become more acquainted with our internal experience by taking us out of our busy routines. Over three days, retreat-goers will have the opportunity to explore the body/mind without the distractions of everyday life and to see what comes and goes over the duration of the retreat. The insights that arise can assist teachers and practitioners both personally and professionally.
Come join our community as we work with mindfulness and all its facets.

This silent retreat is primarily intended for professionals in healthcare, education, or social services, clinicians-in-training, facilitators of mindfulness-based programs, or those with professional interests in the topic (e.g. researchers and administrators).

Fee: Varies based on retreat location (as a charity, we do not charge HST).
