This retreat is for experienced Meditators as well as novice meditators who want to jump in at the “deep end” and deepen/ establish their Vipassana meditation practice.

At the basis of this practice is Letting-go, Surrender, Non-attachment.. even of dearly- held, “sacred” beliefs. Everything must be put on the table of Mindful, open-ended Investigation.

The retreat will be based on sitting meditation although there will be nature walks, qigong, dharma talks and private interviews

Andy James Testimonials

"You were a huge hit with our Wellness and Lifestyle Management class at Centennial College. The feedback we received was extremely positive, including comments like 'excellent', 'fascinating' and 'really informative'. My own observation was that the students were completely captivated by your demonstration"

"Thank you for your participation as a guest speaker at Habitat. Your contribution helps to enrich our program.. the residents enjoyed hearing you speak very much and we look forward to your future involvement"

“Starting Vipassana in earnest with Andy for about 3 or 4 years now, has made all the difference. Despite 4 decades of attempts with other meditative practices, this deceptively simple practice has been taking me to unimaginable depths and recently allowed me to survive my wife's almost lethal illness, which affected me physically beyond any expectation. So I would agree a regular Vipassana practice is foundational to our program. I am hooked. And will continue with it the rest of my life.”
