Registration for this retreat opens on October 27.

Welcome the New Year with reflection and intention, silence and community, surrounded by the beauty and warmth of Loyola House in Guelph. We will be supported by the meditation practice, dharma talks, and an old year/new year ritual. This retreat is suitable for those familiar with Vipassana practice (i.e. having attended a silent residential TNI retreat), as meditation instructions will be kept to a minimum.

Please leave your electronics at home and open to the magic of silence and stillness on retreat, open to the intimacy of the present moment. Discover a different kind of connection! There are beautiful nature trails at Loyola House, so bring your cross-country skis, snowshoes or hiking boots, depending on the weather!

This retreat is taught in English.
