Event description

Description

Take some time to reflect before the start of the new year. In this non-residential retreat, we will cultivate mindfulness and tranquility, as well as reflecting on qualities we want to release and to cultivate in the new year.

Schedule: each day (Dec 26 to 31) we will meet from 9:30 to 3:30, except for Sunday Dec 29 when we will meet from 1-4 pm. You can register for one day or for all six days; unfortunately you need to register for each day separately. Email rachel@bcims.org with any questions.

This venue is fully wheelchair accessible. This event is being held on unceded Coast Salish land.

Led by Rachel Lewis. Rachel completed Spirit Rock's Community Dharma Leader program in 2012, as well as its Dedicated Practitioners Program in 2010. She began retreat teacher training at IMS in 2017. She has spent over 450 nights on silent retreat since 2003, including two 3-month retreats. She has taught at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women and in Vancouver and area since 2011, as well as via her alter egos Buddhist Hulk and Bhante Mixalot. Rachel’s day job at VCH is only barely related to her physics PhD. Her interest in bringing music into meditation practice led her to develop a songbook of Buddhist music for choirs. She also maintains BCIMS' Facebook page.
