Triratna Pacific Northwest Regional Retreat

The System of Practice from a Somatic Approach

September 29 to October 2, 2023

Join us as we explore Triratna's System of Practice from a deeply somatic approach. The system of practice has five key aspects - Intergration, Positive Emotion, Spiritual Death (letting go), Spiritual Rebirth (seeing through), and Receptivity. Learn various tools and practices that can be used in daily life to live a truly embodied life of aliveness, connection, and presence.


Dogen spoke of the body as the gateway to ultimate realization. The more we wake up through the body, the more we become safer, skillful, and more joyful presence in the world. By healing ourselves first, we positively impact others, and the world, in unimaginable ways.

Sliding Scale:

Two nights CAD$ 250 - 325

Three nights CAD$ 350 - 500

All of our weekly classes at Triratna Vancouver are offered for free.  While our team of volunteers is happy to lead classes, there are certain costs associated with running our programs.  While we currently do not have a permanent location, we do occasionally rent spaces for our sessions.  Additionally, we hope to have a permanent location again in the future.   

The word dana means generosity, and is a central Buddhist principle and practice.  If you find our programs helpful, and have the means to do so, we would be forever grateful for any dana you wish to give.  We are a registered charity, and would be happy to provide a tax receipt for your support.
