Pause and catch your breath by joining us for a one-day experiential meditation retreat with Kushok at the beautiful Providence Centre. This retreat is fantastic for both new and experienced meditators and is open to people of all faiths. Learn through Kushok’s skillful instruction how to meditate, how to work with your emotions in meditation, and how to take your practice deeper if you already have an established practice. Discover the joys of meditation and how it can enrich your life. Throughout the day there are several opportunities to ask Kushok questions about your practice and obtain further guidance.
The teachings and practices occur in the tranquil setting of the Providence Renewal Centre (3005-119 Street). Situated on 20 acres in the heart of the city, Providence Renewal Centre has hosted spiritual events from a variety of traditions for over 30 years. The centre has lovely indoor and outdoor spaces and we will spend time learning and meditating indoors and doing some walking meditation outdoors (weather permitting).
Anyone with an interest in meditation is welcome to attend this course. No prior knowledge about or practice of meditation is required. Open to all faiths and beliefs.
