Residential Meditation Retreats

For more information about our retreats, please click on the title below for the retreat that interests you.

Our residential retreats range from two days to eight days. True North Insight is dedicated to offering affordable rates to all. Our retreat fees are on a sliding scale basis that allows participants to pay according to individual means. Fees do not include compensation for the teachings, and teachers rely on the generosity of retreatants for a sustainable income. There is an opportunity to offer dana (donations) to the teachers at the end of each retreat. The deposit is included in all of our fees.

True North Insight scholarships are part of our commitment to make the Buddha's teachings accessible to all, regardless of means.

It is important to us to be a welcoming, safe, and inclusive community, accepting and supportive of diversity in age, race, physical and mental abilities, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity*.  We, therefore, welcome requests for accommodation and will do our best to ensure the comfort of retreatants with diverse needs.

* Our sangha is inclusive of trans and gender diverse (e.g. gender fluid, gender queer, agender) people. We recognize that gender is not dependent on how someone looks and can be something other than male or female. One's gender is often inferred by the pronoun used as reference (he/she/they). We encourage mindfulness around pronouns.

Please note our cancellation policy.
