Event Details

You are invited to join us for the retreat at Camp Samac in Oshawa, Ontario on May 4 – 6, 2018.  The retreat will be led by monastics from Blue Cliff Monastery in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.

 During this retreat we will enjoy being alive in the present moment through mindful practices of breathing, sitting, walking and eating.  We will come together as a community in peaceful solidarity with our monastic brothers and sisters guiding us in mindful living.

There will be a kids program for children aged 5 – 12 and a program for teens and young adults. There will be no program or child care for children aged 4 and under.

Sitting meditation cushions will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own.

Accommodations will be simple bunk style dormitories with shared washrooms. Healthy, vegetarian meals will be provided.  For more information about Camp Samac, please visit the website: http://wpc.scouts.ca/ca/samac-maps-and-directions.  

We look forward to your presence at Camp Samac.

A lotus for you,

The retreat organizers
