Join students from our Meditation Club for our next Meditation Retreat – a time to hang out with great people, learn some new meditation, connect with nature with mindfulness and sacred awareness, go for hikes, amazing food, relax time, make music, and just celebrate life. We’ll travel up from UVic together Friday afternoon around 4:00pm. Accommodation is rustic but comfortable in a heated lodge. Bunk beds with two persons to a room. Bring your own sleeping bag or bedding. We share in the planning in the couple of weeks leading up to the retreat. Cost: $70,– plus $5.00 for transportation for those of you who need a ride. There is also the option to join the bicycle group and ride up to the Camp earlier in the day (and wave the $5.00 for transportation).
The UVic Meditation Retreat is one of the greatest community highlights for kicking off a new semester with new friends! Up to 30 participants embark on a weekend adventure to Shawnigan Lake for a rich combination of meditation and fun, with opportunities to go inward, practice new meditations, engage in enlightening workshops, share yoga sessions, experience the natural world, and nurture the mind and soul — as well as plenty of social time to make new friends in an open, inclusive environment, prepare and share beautiful home-cooked meals, go on hikes, play games, enjoy music jams, and maybe even have a campfire! And amidst all of this, we also benefit from free time for homework, reading, alone time, leisure, and just relaxing by the lake.
Our retreat host, Camp Pringle, is located an hour drive from UVic and offers a fine balance between natural tranquility and all the comfort of heat and showers and a cozy living space.
Food is mostly prepared in advance during a fun (yet optional) cooking bee sometime during the previous week.
The retreat is open to UVic students and friends of our meditation community for a price of $65.00 plus $5 for passengers of a car-pool.
