Coming Home: 4-day Silent Retreat

July 21-25, 2024

Bowen Island, British Columbia

In an island sanctuary devoted to contemplative silence, with magnificent views of mountains, forests and seas, we come together for restoration and reintegration into who we truly are beyond the divisions that separate us from our True Nature.

Plunge deeply into the rich teachings of the Pratyabhijñāhṛdayam, a primary text of Kashmir Shaivism, by engaging with practices suggested in the text. During each gathering, we'll devote 45 minutes or so to one meditation technique. There will be time for debrief and discussion, then continued conversation and work with the practice between gathering.
