Event Details

WELCOME!
Join Three Jewels Vancouver from March 15 to March 24 on a Shamatha retreat in Squamish, British Columbia led by popular teacher and author Douglas Veenhof. The enthusiastic response to his weekend intensive at Three Jewels last fall inspired us to create a retreat with all the support, instruction, and inspiration needed to make a leap in the stability and clarity of your attentional skills.

Fees include three vegetarian meals per day, plus snacks. Accommodations are shared, unless by special request.

Weekend Retreat (March 15-18)
Overview of Shamatha meditation theory • Practical and experiential instruction on establishing a base of mental and physical relaxation with which stability and clarity are balanced • Optional yoga classes • Lunch, accommodations, and full access to all facilities.

Full Retreat (Mar 15 – 24)
All of the Weekend Retreat elements • Several personal practice sessions • Optional walking and hiking meditation • Group practice with a question and answer session • Yoga classes on Saturday and Sunday mornings, focusing on a personal practice that can be adapted for the week • A one hour, one-on-one support and feedback session with Douglas (with an optional 15 minutes, if desired).

Refund Policy
Refunds are available before March 1, less a $25 administration fee and any service fees on the payment method. There are no refunds after March 1 unless you find someone to replace your reservation.

Dharma

We teach formal philosophy classes from the Asian Classics Institute, dedicated to the serious study and personal practice of the original teachings of the Buddha.

Music

Bhajans or devotional song moves our winds in the most delightful way. Sing in the key of bliss at our kirtan events. No experience necessary. All proceeds go towards supporting Three Jewels Vancouver so we can provide affordable yoga and dharma by donation.

Meditation

Through weekly classes and workshops, we offer meditation training and retreats steeped in ancient traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Yoga

We offer a variety of styles suitable for all levels and specialize in TIbetan Heart Yoga, founded on Hatha and working both inner and outer methods. Especially powerful for those wanting to deepen their practice.

 

Our Vision

We exist to illuminate the depth of the yogic path to lasting happiness. We provide comprehensive and heart centered, music, meditation and yoga programs rich in ancient wisdom.
