About the event

Welcome to all to this wonderful opportunity to do this 5 days Urban Retreat on Tsongkhapa's famous text, joining explanations with integration through meditation on the Lamrim, Calm-Abiding and Special Insight.

You will have a better background for this Retreat if you already studied Calm-Abiding, Special Insight and Lamrim before. If not, it will be a good introduction to these topics for you.

For the 5 days of the program, the schedule is the same : 2 sessions in the morning, 2 sessions in the afternoon, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, including breaks and time for lunch. Each session lasts about 1h15, including teachings, meditation and time for questions.

The teachings are following the same tradition as H.H. Dalaï-Lama on how to attain calm-abiding mind according to Buddhist philosophy teachings. ​ It is well known that the primary purpose of the Buddha's teaching is to attain happiness of enlightenment by practicing two forms of meditation : concentration meditation and analytical meditation. The first aims at achieving calm-abiding (samatha), while the second aims to gaining special insight (vipashyana). 

Lama Samten is a great master in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He studied and trained as a monk in Gaden Jangtse, one of the greatest Buddhist Monastic University, for approximately 20 years. He now lives in Canada since 25 years and is the founder of Paramita Centre, which started in Quebec in 2002.

This Urban Retreat is without accomodation and doesn't include food. We will have coffee, tea and snacks for the breaks.

Spots are limited, so book early to guarantee yours. We will take approximatively 1 hour 30 for lunch time. You can bring your lunch if you want as we have a small kitchen here.

NOTE: WE HAVE VERY LIMITED SPOTS. PLEASE KINDLY NOTE THAT WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ISSUE REFUNDS 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE EVENT (AFTER MARCH 19TH) AS SPOTS ARE LIMITED AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FILL YOUR SPOT ON A LAST MINUTE NOTICE.
