Margo McLoughlin

1-day Retreat

Saturday, April 30, 2011

9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

With Margo McLoughlin


Goward House

2495 Arbutus RoadVictoria, BC

In this one-day retreat, Margo McLoughlin will guide participants to consider how mindfulness and generosity work together on our spiritual journey. What does it mean to practice generosity and why is it considered the first step on the Buddhist path?

This retreat is open to both beginners and students with more practice experience.

Margo McLoughlin has been practicing in the Insight tradition of Theravada Buddhism since 1986. She is currently in training to be a Community Dharma Leader through SpiritRockMeditationCenter in Woodacre, California. As a storyteller and writer, Margo brings a deep appreciation of the role of metaphor, in the form of stories and poetry, to enlivening and inspiring our practice.

Cost: The Buddha's teachings are considered to be priceless. In keeping with the teachings and spirit of generosity or dana, we offer this retreat on a donation basis. The suggested donation for this retreat is $20 to cover the cost of facility rental, and other organizational expenses. A basket will be placed at the registration table for your donation. Any money collected above the costs of the retreat will go towards other VVC programmes.

No one will be refused for lack of funds; please give whatever is affordable given your means.

We will also set out another basket for you to offer dana for the teachings and the teacher who has shared them with us. We will speak about the practice of dana for the teachings during the retreat.

Once you have completed the registration form (see below) you will receive more detailed information about the retreat.
