Whether you are attending online or in-person; indoors or out, we work to create a calm, welcoming space for you to put aside your routines and distractions. We’ll invite quiet moments for reflection and mindfulness. Readings, images, poetry and natural environments act as catalysts for introspection. Gentle guidelines support listening and sharing in small groups. Simple meditations and gentle exercises offer rest and renewal. All retreat experiences are invitational and participants determine their level of participation.
We are in Toronto, Canada and many of our in-person retreats are held at The Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) in the heart of the city. CSI is a welcoming and fully accessible location, easily reached by public transit. Public parking is nearby.
From time to time we offer our retreats in Toronto’s beautiful High Park. For longer, residential retreats we engage retreat centres outside of the city.
Yes! We can help you plan a retreat for strategic planning, visioning or professional development. Just get in touch.
We are settlers on Treaty 13 Land, the traditional territories of many Indigenous Nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are committed to honouring the history this land bears witness to, responding to the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and walking lightly on the Earth. A portion of proceeds from all our offerings are sent to: The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation and The Nii’kinaaganaa Foundation.
