Silent Retreat
Sunday afternoon to Tuesday
Transition seamlessly into a guided silent retreat where you can apply the teachings you’ve learned and enjoy the peace of mind that arises naturally within.

During the Breaks

Between retreat sessions take time to relax and carry your experience of peace in the following ways:

  • enjoy the tranquility of our 82 acres of grounds

  • connect and discuss with like-minded people

  • nourish yourself with a refreshing drink and healthy snack in the World Peace Café

  • explore our bookstore and giftshop

Within the stillness of retreat, we are able to step back from the busyness of our daily life and focus on what is truly meaningful.

Amongst the breathtaking and natural beauty of the woodlands and Temple grounds, enjoy the warmth and hospitality of a spiritual community, and the company of people from all over the world gathered together with a single purpose: to deepen their experience of Kadam Dharma through meditation.

Simply dwelling at the Temple our worries and problems fall away leaving us to enjoy a feeling of happiness and peace that arises naturally from within.

As our mind begins to settle we experience deeper and deeper levels of concentration and peace. Our heart mixes with the beauty of Kadam Dharma and our life is changed forever.
