About this event


Monday - Saturday, October 4 - 9 , exact times to be confirmed

All times are Pacific Time, Vancouver, Canada

A commitment to attend the entire retreat is required, similar to travelling to an onsite residential retreat.

Depth and Embodiment

An insight meditation retreat.

In this online insight meditation retreat we will begin with secluding ourselves as best we can from busyness, distractions and obligations so we can build a stable, loving presence in the body from which to see clearly. As stability strengthens, we develop more stillness and depth from which to see how it is that we are adding to our suffering through reactive conditioning, and how through loving presence, wisdom and compassion these patterns are gradually transformed.

For this reason we ask that participants be able to commit to the entire retreat, and be in silence as much as is possible for an online retreat. There will be periods of sitting, walking, instruction, dharma talks and discussion groups.

Retreat Information

Fees: A sliding scale is offered. Please choose the highest fee that works for you. Financial assistance is available, no one will be turned away. If financial assistance is needed, email sandy@bcims.org.

Cancellations: Fees can be fully refunded up to end of October 3, 2021.

Teacher Dana: Your fee contributes towards BCIMS being able to continue to offer its programs such as this retreat.

Voluntary donations (dana) for the teaching may be given at the retreat.

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.

Information on how to transfer Dana to Adrianne and Christina will be provided to attendees after registering for the retreat.
