Retreat Description

Bringing Stillness Into Our Ordinary Lives

This daylong is being offered to allow you to put aside your daily responsibilities and social engagements. Cultivating extended practice periods supports stillness of mind and diminished reactivity. It provides an opportunity for deeper insight and understanding into the ways of habit mind. During this online retreat we will explore how to blend together the stillness of practice with the ordinary movement of a householder life. We will intentionally limit our speech with those we live with and put aside our phones for the day. There will be guided meditations, talks, and time for questions and answers. We will hold the day as a gift of kindness and compassion to ourselves.

Retreat Details

Fees: A sliding scale of fees is offered. Please choose what is right for you. If additional reduced fee would help you attend please contact jess@bcims.org.

Attendance: With the online format you can choose when and how long you attend.

Registration: If you are unable to register online contact jess@bcims.org.

Cancellation Policy: Refunds are provided up to 24 hours before the start of the retreat.

Teacher Dana: Your registration fee contributes to BCIMS being able to continue to offer retreats such as this. None of your fee goes to Tuere.

In the Buddhist tradition, teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.

Voluntary donations (dana) for the teaching may be offered to Tuere on her website: https://www.tueresala.org/pages/dana

More information about how to offer Dana will be shared with those registered.

Recordings: The retreat will be recorded and the recordings will be shared with registrants about 24 hours after the recorded session has taken place. Please note we do not record any Q/A sessions or break out sessions to honour the privacy of those attending.
