Deepening our connection to each other, to the terma, and to the path at this dark time of year is a nurturing way to find our way forward, collectively and singly.

The Vancouver Shambhala Centre would like to offer refuge and illumination in a retreat at our brand new centre in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Werma Acharya Chapman will explore with us the deeper meaning of the teachings and practices and how they are relevant in the face of these turbulent times. When we recognize our dons we soften and purify our minds. And from this expanse of space we observe our inherent brilliance.

Part Time and Full Time Participation

We invite you to attend the full retreat if possible: Wednesday, December 26 through Tuesday, January 1. Partial participation is only possible from Saturday, December 29 to Tuesday, January 1 (all 4 days). To ensure that our practice container is strong no other partial attendance dates are possible.

Full program price: $550  (if the program price is an obstacle, please consider paying the suggested minimum: $320)

Patron price: $649

4 day price: $350

The program fees include breakfasts and lunches each day.

Heart gift
