There are few better ways to give ourselves a break from routine and rethink our priorities than by taking part in a meditation retreat. On retreat we stop all forms of ‘busyness’ and everyday activity in order to focus deeply on a specific spiritual theme or practice. Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre offers retreats that range in length from half a day to a full weekend, and are suited to different levels of experience. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced practitioner, please feel welcome to join us for one of our in-house or country retreats.

The Wisdom of Love … a special weekend retreat @ Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada
Apr 26 – Apr 28 all-day

We often say, “Love is the answer”, and “All you need is love”, but do we even know what real love is? And how much do we actually trust love? How willing are we, in our heart of hearts, to give ourselves over to love? And yet pure love – a deep and compelling experience that springs from the wisdom of interdependence and selflessness – always gives rise to pure happiness and fulfillment, and brings immense benefit to others. However, it is wisdom alone that can unlock the vast potential for love that lies within each of us.

This retreat will guide us gently and skilfully towards profound understandings that will allow us to discover the joys of loving others pure-heartedly.

“When we see things as they really are, our delusions naturally disappear and virtuous minds naturally manifest. Minds such as love and kindness are based on reality and are an expression of our pure nature.”  Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
