The Toronto Shambhala Centre is hosting a silent day of sitting and walking meditation. While spending hours in silence may seem daunting to some, these retreats can be a welcome respite and a great way to foster stillness in the rush of everyday life.

The day will include meditation instruction and guidance in an atmosphere of “functional silence.” No experience is necessary. The initial orientation session will provide an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to explore various ways to sit comfortably using a chair, cushion, etc.

The meditation retreat will include a vegetarian lunch, healthy snacks, and breaks.

In order to help us to address the distractions of electronic communication, we suggest that participants leave their cell phones at home or turn them off during the day long retreat.

Registration is limited to 25 people. Please register online.
