SSRC Event Calendar

Work as Practice (Autumn)

2 - 4 October 2020
Sea to Sky Retreat Centre

You are invited to participate in a Work as Practice program at Sea to Sky Retreat Centre which begins on the afternoon of Friday, October 2 and ends after lunch on Sunday, October 4.

Volunteers are promised hearty meals, good companionship, healthy outdoor exercise, and an opportunity to join the residents of Sea to Sky Retreat Centre in the practice of bringing meditative awareness and aspiration to everyday activities. Following is a typical daily schedule during the work program:

Shamatha & Work As Practice liturgy
Work Session
Work Session
Shamatha and Dedication of Merit

The work activities of this weekend will be focused on preparing the retreat centre for the winter.  The activities will include raking leaves, splitting wood, stacking firewood, preparing Retreat Road for snow conditions, and dry docking of the SSRC raft.

There is no charge for this program, but we need to know in advance whether you plan to attend for a few hours, or for the entire weekend. In that way we can be prepared with meals, a bed for overnight accommodation, and the tools to support your participation. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to the Retreat Manager.
