This silent retreat is for advanced meditators who would like supported space to concentrate on their own practice.
Retreatants wishing to take part in this deep retreat time will be given guidance as necessary by Karma Chime Wongmo, and will discuss their practice with her when booking.
Our administrator will help you co-ordinate your chat with Karma Chime.
The Dharma Centre is pleased to support this deep work by providing a special rate, which includes lodging, three meals per day, and the use of facilities (such as the temple) for quiet contemplation. See below for our special rates.
Karma Chime Wongmo has served the Dharma Centre as Resident Teacher for many years and is now its Advisory Teacher. She completed a B.F.A. degree at the U. of M. in Winnipeg, was a head social worker at the YWCA there, and taught school in Toronto after she began studying with Namgyal Rinpoche in 1968.
In 1975, she co-founded The Open Path in Boise, Idaho, where she began teaching the Dharma. While there she published four books, three of which were of Rinpoche’s discourses. In 1980 she received ordination from the H.H. the 16th Karmapa. Upon returning to Canada after a 3-year intensive retreat in the Costa Rican rain forest, she attended and taught at the Dharma Centre’s Seminary and Academy. At Rinpoche’s request, she established Bodhi Publishing and continues to publish his discourses. She has also organised and participated in several rafting trips and other types of explorations of discovery and growth.
