Residential Meditation Retreats

Take the time to enter wholeheartedly into practice in a dedicated setting. Multi-day retreats are an opportunity to physically and psychologically get away from our everyday routines, and to suffuse the body/mind with Dharma practice. 

Our multi-day residential retreats are conducted either at Chapin Mill Retreat Center, Batavia, New York, or at other retreat centres in Ontario. See the listings for the details of each retreat.

For more information on Satipañña Insight Meditation Toronto retreats, please contact us at (not the individual venues).

Please note: During the Coronavirus crisis, residential retreats were replaced by online retreats. Attendees participated from their own homes. The SIMT Board of Directors continues to monitor the situation and will keep SIMT members apprised of any need to return exclusively to online retreats.

Before you attend a retreat, please familiarize yourself with the Retreat Guidelines (in the sidebar).

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.
