Retreats

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.

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully: a retreat @ Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada
Apr 17 – Apr 19 all-day

with Gen Kelsang Suma

Many people are afraid to talk about death because they feel that it might make them sad or depressed. Actually, when
we develop the wisdom of thinking about death and impermanence, we can experience a beautiful sense of relief and confidence that removes our fear.

Fear often comes from ‘‘unknowing’’. In this meditation retreat, we will learn exactly what happens when we die and how to prepare for our death. By doing this, we can make our life deeply meaningful, so that when it comes to a close, we will feel, quite simply, that we are ‘‘returning home’’.

 

“Spiritual practice is what gives meaning to our lives, and by applying our practice at the time of death we can die joyfully and experience pure, lasting happiness in all our future lives.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
