Victoria Vipassana Community Non-Residential Weekend Retreat

This silent non-residential weekend retreat on November 7 & 8 (includes lunch) will be appropriate for both new and experienced meditators and will be taught by Joanne Broatch from Vancouver. We will meet from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm each day at Queenswood, 2494 Arbutus Rd., Victoria, B.C. The weekend will include sitting and walking periods (including outdoor walking) as well as meditation instruction, and a talk by the teacher.

Joanne Broatch, the teacher for the weekend, has practised Buddhist meditation in the Theravadan tradition since 1980 and has been teaching, primarily on the West Coast since 1994 where she has focused on the growth ofsangha(meditation community), especially in smaller communities. Joanne is particularly interested in the importance of faith and loving kindness in physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
