City Retreat Day

January 11 / 10:00 AM - January 11 / 4:00 PM

City Retreat Days provide an opportunity for an extended period of group meditation practice and exploration of the Shambhala Buddhist teachings. The day will be organized into two practice periods i.e. morning and afternoon, with a shared lunch in between. It is, therefore, possible to attend the whole day, or part of the day. To support the continuity of each practice period, we would appreciate that you arrange your arrival and departure time to enable you to complete an entire practice period.

This day is open to all, regardless of experience. Meditation instruction is available.


An example overview of the day is as follows:
