Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour Retreat

We invite you to True North Insight's fifth meditation retreat for BIPOC folx. While we all may have experiences in common, we are also a tapestry of many colours, backgrounds, cultures, orientations, life experiences, world views, and identities. This retreat aims to bring together a community of people of colour for practice in an environment of safety and ease where all of one's self is welcome and appreciated.

The retreat will offer an introduction to Insight Meditation (Vipassana) and heart practices in noble silence as our container.

Through the offerings of guided stationary (seated, standing, or reclined) and movement (walking) instructions, you will become acquainted with the words and philosophy of the Dharma through talks and reflections by the teachers. This is an accessible retreat for meditators in the beginning stages of practice, as well as for those who have some practice experience.

It is our hope that you will experience the practice as an antidote, medicine to the impact of both the individual and collective stress caused by the cultural and structural manifestation of oppression, racism, genocide, and colonization that has impacted BIPOC for and through the generations.
