Away Half-day Retreat & Cross country skiing

February 4 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Finding Stillness Within – Early Bird Price Extended to January 29th!

In this mini-meditation retreat at the beautiful Folk Tree Lodge, you will find the space to unplug from digital life and settle into a peaceful and refreshed state of mind. Buddhist nun Kelsang Khacho will guide you in a series of breathing meditations to help detoxify your body, speech, and mind, which will fill you with positive energy and strengthen your good heart. Greater peace and happiness awaits you.


We will begin our day cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking (your choice!).

We will meet at the West Bragg Creek Parking Lot at 9:30am. Please have what you need for skiing, snowshoeing or hiking so we can start at 9:45 am. A park pass is needed for the parking lot.  If you have one and can take others who do not that would be great.  Please let us know at akbcinfo@gmail.com how many people you can take or if you need a ride. 

If you have extra cross country equipment or snowshoes that others can use please let us know at akbcinfo@gmail.com. Here is some information about equipment rentals if you need it:

Bring water. Wear layers for skiing and snow shoeing, as you will get hot. Bring extra socks and sweater/shirt to change into for meditation – as your clothes may be damp or wet from the exercise.

A vegetarian lunch will be provided at the Folk Tree Lodge. Please let us know at akbcinfo@gmail.com of any food allergies you might have when you register so we can plan the menu accordingly.
