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.

SIMT has resumed in-person non-residential retreats at Friends House (60 Lowther Ave., Toronto).  2 blocks north of St. George station; street parking only | Google Map.  Please check our calendar for details.

We will continue to monitor the COVID situation and send out an announcement if we need to return to online teachings. Please be sure to sign up for our email announcements. Also, our leadership team will continue to offer online guided meditations and Dharma talks that can be live-streamed for free on Zoom.

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.
