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 truly 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.
