Join us for a weekend meditation retreat on the forested shores of Daisy Lake at Sea to Sky Retreat Centre. This event is designed to provide guidance and support to develop familiarity with our mind’s processes. There will be group instruction, group discussions, and guided instruction of sitting and walking meditation. The retreat will be led by Bruce Ashton, a practice instructor of Siddhartha’s Intent and senior student of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. In this retreat Bruce will discuss “What Makes You Not a Buddhist” a title of a book written by Rinpoche.
The charge for this program including accommodation and meals is $150. If you are interested in attending, please see the registration details below.

“Most of the time we are not in control of ourselves. Our mind is always distracted with something – our enemies, our lovers, our friends, hope and fear, attachment, aggression – there is always something. The world controls our minds; we have little control over it.
Even though the real essence of mind is not rigid, our mind has become rigid because of our basic insecurity. But we can train our mind. We can make this rigid mind flexible, workable…”
–Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
