One-day Silent Meditation Retreat

October 22, 2016 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm
The Four Foundations (Sathipatthäna) of mindfulness is the path for awakening and liberation. Liberating from all suffering is the Supreme Enlightenment. We practice based on this teaching which should be the way to emancipate from afflictions in human life.

’Even though enlightened, the Buddha and Arahants (enlightened monks) dwelled in a quiet places time to time. They stayed away from the busyness. Left behind all the associations. Those who are willing to gain imperturbableness should be able to spend adequate time with their practice’’. 

Busyness is reasonable for a lay life. Though, as followers of the noble community,  regular meditators need to find a way to periodically avoid all distractions of daily life. At least, once a month they can dedicate  a day  with their fellow practitioners in order to fulfil the path. Respecting that,  Samatha Vipassana Meditation Centre is pleased to offer a one-day special meditation retreat for regular participants on Saturday October 22nd from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm at SVMC (3454 - 37 Street NW, Edmonton). If you would like to participate in this great meritorious deed, please sign up by submitting the form below. You are expected to bring your own lunch.

We kindly inform you that the sign-up for this retreat is now closed. Waiting list is also full. We regret that it is not possible to accommodate more participants due to space limitation of SVMC. Thank you for your understanding.
