Event Details

Cultivating Space in Heart and Mind

A Daylong Meditation Retreat

Teacher: Dawn Mauricio
Location: Yoga de l'éveil, 4847 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2V 4E7

In this daylong, we will create space in the body with the self-care technique of therapy ball massage. The accessible sequences are designed to open our awareness to see that sensations, however tense they may be, are not as dense, opaque, or heavy as they may feel. Our guided meditations will explore how in much the same way our thoughts and identities are not as dense, opaque or heavy as they may seem. You will leave with lightness in body and heart-mind, your own set of therapy massage balls, and a routine you can do on your own to support your meditation practice. There will also be a short session of mindful movement (optional).

This retreat will be taught in English. Questions and comments in both French and English are welcome and encouraged. All levels welcome. Places are limited.

What to bring: blanket, meditation cushion or stool, water bottle and lunch. Chairs available.

Cost: sliding scale $25 (students/low income/ unemployed)-$35-$45 plus dana (donation) to the teacher. True North Insight aims to offer rates accessible to everyone. Our payment scale allows retreatants to pay according to their financial means.

Cancellations: Please let me know as soon as you can should you need to cancel. It is possible to receive a refund up to 48 hours before the start of the retreat.

Please plan to arrive early. Doors will be open as of 9:30am.

Dawn Mauricio

Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has completed numerous silent residential retreats in Canada, the US, Thailand, and Burma, including a 3-month silent retreat at Insight Meditation Society. She has completed several programs of meditation studies from True North Insight, and Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Currently, Dawn is a student in two multi-year teacher training programs to enable her to lead silent residential retreats for both teenagers with Inward Bound Meditation and adults with Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.


Please note that your retreat cost covers the room rental and all administrative aspects for this retreat. It does not include remuneration for the teachers. According to the Buddhist tradition which dates back 2,600 years, the teachings have no price. For this reason, they are offered freely. At the end of the retreat, you will be invited to offer dana (a donation) to the teacher.
