This retreat includes some segments of silence.

Where: We are coming together in King City, On. 

Retreat Location: It’s All About You

Address: 14550 Dufferin St, King City, ON L7B 1K5. Ontario

Details:   Arrive anytime after 4pm on Friday (to check in, relax and enjoy the views).  Contact us if you would like to arrive earlier.

The ‘Going Into Silence’ Retreat includes Inner Peace Qigong Classes but it’s built around a larger container of ‘silence’, ‘meditation’ and guided inner life practices.  Includes provate one on one Q&A time with Sunim and group discussions.  It’s a great chance to take time for yourself, to be kind to yourself, to turn inward and bathe in the silence.

Because we wish to keep the retreat small and intimate (we will limit it to about 8 TO 10 people only) we will no doubt fill up quick. For this reason we will offer it on a first response basis (I will reply with more information once I get your email.  Your payment is what holds your spot - see below). 

Food: We believe in healthy food (and in making it DELICIOUS!)  Breakfasts include yogurts, berries, Keto granola, flax, nuts, healthy hot cereal blends, eggs, nut milk, cream, organic coffee, etc.  In addition, retreatants can bring their own food and / or are invited to bring a favourite dish or two as well.   An added option - - Good News! We just negotiated a deep discount with Mango Tree Authentic Thai Eatery (One of the BEST ‘Authentic’ Thai Food Restaurants).  

For just an added $45 + hst Per Person you can get  a  delicious,  memorable ‘full’ Saturday lunch and Dinner, Plus Sunday lunch which we will be warmed and set out for you.   They are making several amazing items including their famous Immune Boosting ‘Tom Yum SOUP’.  Some say the food alone is worth attending for!  

Meals are prepared and laid out by our mindful volunteers.

"Stand still. 

The trees ahead and the bushes beside you

Are not lost. 

Wherever you are is called Here, 

And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, 

Must ask permission to know it and be known. 

The forest breathes. Listen. It answers, 

I have made this place around you, 

If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.


No two trees are the same to Raven. 

No two branches are the same to Wren. 

If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you, 

You are surely lost. Stand still. 

The forest knows Where you are. 

You must let it find you.”

David Wagoner

October Blog Post -

Embracing the Profound Tranquility of Deep Stillness and Meditation 💎🙏 ❤️ 

We are just back from our Qigong Fall Retreat, a magnificent journey towards rediscovering the serenity within our hearts. This retreat was not merely a temporal interlude; it unfolded as a healing voyage touching various dimensions of our existence. Gratitude fills my heart for the deep sharing and the many special moments with friends and the opportunity to nurture the spirit. 

We're excited to announce that our next sanctuary for the soul will take place from February 9th to 11th, 2024. In keeping with the essence of intimate connection, we limit our retreats to a select group of 8 to 9 individuals. To secure your place in this sacred space, we encourage you to register early. You can get on the interest list simply by sending an email to

 🌠💫 There's a myriad of compelling reasons to make retreats an integral part of your life's rhythm. Deep stillness and silence, as experienced in our retreats, bestow invaluable benefits. The practices shared leads to a measurable reduction in cortisol levels, a reset of the nervous system, enhanced sleep quality, lower blood pressure, and heart rate regulation, as observed and shared by our cherished participants during the recent retreat. These tangible transformations contribute to overall healing. 

Beyond the physiological, retreating offers a unique opportunity to dwell in the present moment. By becoming mindful of our thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations without the burden of judgment or analysis, we embark on a profound journey of self-discovery. This heightened self-awareness empowers the mind and fosters empathy, both towards oneself and others. It kindles the flames of creativity by providing mental respite from the ceaseless information processing, thereby improving cognitive functioning. 

🌟 Spending time is silence and tapping into Qigong meditation and deeper tranquility, stimulates neural development in the hippocampus region of the brain. This supports mental health and cognitive capabilities, promoting a more fulfilled existence. Mindfulness, as cultivated in these serene retreats, unveils the depths of our true-self and amplifies our empathy towards others, ultimately guiding us towards a more enriched life. 

🌟 In a world inundated with noise, scientific studies have underscored the detrimental impact of ongoing external stimulation on cognitive health: Scientific American - Ask the Brain's Background Noise. Take time for yourself and touch into silence regularly. I consider it a profound honor to share the retreat and training experiences with our Sangha, our spiritual community. There are just so many reasons to go into silence and meditation with a heart centred community: 141 Benefits of Meditation. 

🌟🌀 As we journey deeper into the realm of stillness and meditation, let us collectively nurture our inner peace and awaken our fullest potential. May the gentle whispers of serenity guide us on our path of self-discovery and healing. Thank-You to share this Fall Retreat with me. I feel renewed and grateful.. 

🙏 ❤️
