Event description

Description

Kalyāṇamittatā: The Perfections and the Floods

WITH MARY BURNS

June 25 - July 2, 2017

Keswick Ontario (Canada)

Good friendship, good companionship, good comradeship, are the whole of the holy life. (Upaḍḍha Sutta)

Most of us live many lives. Our daily lives at home, at work, at play and our spiritual lives on retreat and at home. What would it be like to live one whole life?

Join Mary Burns on an Insight Dialogue Retreat and explore the Buddha’s teachings at the boundary of formal retreat and daily life. The retreat will move between the familiar world of Noble Silence and the less familiar world of Noble Speech. Outside the Dhamma Hall participants will be invited to join together in the activities of daily life: sharing a meal together, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, walking, swimming, being together, using the Insight Dialogue guidelines as support for Noble Speech. As kalyāṇamitta - good and virtuous friends - we will explore skillful means to support a whole life practice.

This retreat is open to people with previous meditation experience. We would encourage all attendees to develop a regular face to face, or online Insight Dialogue practice as preparation for this retreat. The Metta online Insight Dialogue programs can be found here. Contact info@kalyanamittata.com for information on Introduction to Insight Dialogue programs in Toronto.

The retreat will be held from June 25 to July 2, 2017 at the Loretto Maryholme retreat centre just north of Toronto, Ontario.

Accommodations and meals are offered as dana. A fully refundable deposit of $100 is required to reserve a place on this retreat. Refunds will be offered for cancellations received before 1 April, 2017 or on completion of the retreat. There will be no refunds for no shows, or cancellations after 1 April, 2017.

DATE AND TIME DETAILS:

Arrival is on Sunday, June 25 between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Supper will be served as the first retreat meal. The retreat will close on Sunday, July 2. Lunch will be served at 12:00 noon and end by 1:00 pm.

LOCATION: Keswick, Ontario

ADDRESS: Loretto Maryholme, 379A Bouchier St., Roches Point, On, L0E 1P0, Canada
