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.

Combining classical practices such as body and breath sensing, quiet sitting and yoga nidra with outdoor practices taken from the Vijñāna Bhairava, an early Tantric text of Kashmir Shaivism, we will come to experience everyday life as an expression of the Absolute.

CAD 1140 / $850 USD includes single room, private bath and all meals

Single rooms limited to 15
