Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe is pleased to announce that Gaden Samten Ling’s 3rd Annual Clearwater Retreat will be taking place April 25th – 28th, 2024, at the beautiful Sanctum Retreat Centre in Clearwater County, Alberta. Registration is open now!

Your retreat experience will include Sanctum’s beautiful private accommodations (double occupancy available for couples from the same household), all meals and snacks, meditation instruction and practice, Lojong (mind training) teachings, optional morning and evening restorative yoga, and opportunities to build connection with Kushok, Geshe-la, and your Dharma retreat community. This is a chance to deepen your practice and understanding while being in a setting that offers nature, solace, and reflection along with invaluable teachings and guidance.

Kushok will be sharing wisdom from the classic text “The Jewels of the Aryas,” a mind training (Lojong) text intended to assist practitioners in transforming adversity into spiritual practice, with the intention of developing great compassion. Kushok will also provide guidance and advice for meditation practice.

Please don’t miss this special opportunity to deepen your understanding and spiritual practice with Gaden Samten Ling’s 2024 Clearwater Retreat.

Yoga sessions are shared in a supportive way that is inclusive whether you are a seasoned practitioner or if this is your very first class. Movements will be done on the floor on your mat, but modifications will be given for those wishing to stay in chairs. The morning session will consist of gentle stretches, breath practices, and warming up the joints to aid in releasing tightness and creating both stability and range of motion in the body – preparing you for periods of sitting in meditation and learning sessions. The evening session will also be a very gentle practice, an unwinding of the day, calming the nervous system and preparing the body to ease into sleep.

Thank you for your continued support of Gaden Samten Ling.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Clearwater Retreat!
