Workshops & Intensives

Workshops and intensives are suited to students who want to integrate their practice with the demands of their busy lives. Inspired, and having gained insight into practice, and new friends, students leave workshops & intensives feeling more awake and calm.

Workshops and intensives are non-residential and held in urban centres. I teach them based on any combination of Buddhist philosophy, western psychology, yoga, and meditation. There are workshops and intensives designed for participants of all levels and backgrounds, from raw beginners to teachers, clinicians, and therapists.

Workshops

Usually held on weekends, workshops are typically one or two-day events. They’re preceded by a talk the evening before. Workshops take the form of training for professionals, day-long meditation events, teen mindfulness courses, or weekend yoga workshops.

Intensives

We like being able to offer intensives which share a lot of the same benefits of retreats but are less expensive and more accessible to people living in cities.

Usually several days long, intensives are like being on retreat during the day, but—because we’re still in the middle of an urban centre, and going home at night—it’s a great opportunity to practice with the city too. Based on focused, community-oriented practice, intensives feel like a combination of being in a yoga workshop, a university classroom, a community centre, and a monastery.

Note: If students come from out of town for intensives, we try to help them find accommodation.
