Victoria and Vancouver Island
Bodhichitta Centre offers guided retreats to allow people the opportunity to gain deeper meditation experience. On retreat we stop all forms of business and extraneous activities in order to emphasize a particular spiritual practice. This can just be one day, or a weekend, or longer if you have the time.
IN THE CITY or AWAY
We offer urban retreats at Bodhichitta Centre in the heart of Victoria and away retreats at beautiful locations on Vancouver Island. Use the links below to see what retreats are available and to find out more about retreats and meditation.
