Non-residential Meditation Retreats

Join one-day or multi-day guided meditation retreats in downtown Toronto. Retreats are an opportunity to physically and psychologically get away from our everyday routines, and to suffuse the body/mind with Dharma.

Please note: During the Coronavirus crisis, residential retreats are being held online only. You can participate from your own home.

At other times, non-residential retreats, unless otherwise noted, take place at Society of Friends (Quakers) House, 60 Lowther Avenue, Toronto, ON

2 blocks north of St. George station; street parking only | Google Map

Please familiarize yourself with the Retreat Guidelines (in the sidebar) before you attend a retreat.

Podcasts of some Dharma talks from previous retreats can be found online.

We welcome everyone to participate in a safe and respectful meditation environment regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, or age. To this end, all are encouraged to approach the teachers or board members with any requests for accommodation, or other concerns about well being during practice.

Scholarships are available for most of our retreats; please speak to one of the teachers.
