In-Person Training

Roll up your sleeves and jump in.

While we love online learning, it can’t compare to live, in-person dharma teachings with Teachers and a community (sangha). Experiential learning, especially for longer periods, is where wisdom develops, taking you beyond knowledge. We invite you to meet us, via meditation retreats, public classes and intensive program at our centre.
