Why Attend This Retreat?

In truth, there is no search for enlightenment, there’s only ever been a search to maintain un-enlightenment. Why? Simply put, what you’ve got you haven’t wanted… at least, not entirely. Truth (freedom) is what's already the case. You cannot seek and find what's already the case. Therefore the only way to end this apparent dilemma of ‘not finding’ is not by integrating something new into your current experience, but by re-examining your current experience and questioning the claims that say it’s not enough. The innocence that you are IS enough; it’s always been enough. Your tireless search for an equal alternative has never yielded lasting results… and never will. It’s time to work with what you’ve got. Regardless of how incomplete you may think it is, it’s actually much more than anything you’ve ever imagined. This retreat is an opportunity to realize that in your own direct experience.

Knock on my door this April and enter the real. Come and see the world as it really is; a world free of there being anything wrong or incomplete. Also, knock for good food, laughter and the joy that comes from being with other lovers of truth.

Our Retreat Space:

Our retreat will take place in my home which is centrally located in the White Rock area. Our indoor guided meditations, 1:1 sessions, meals, and fire-pit gatherings will take place here. The main living room area is very cozy and spacious enough to comfortably accommodate all attendees. You're also welcome to hang out in most areas of the home; make tea in the kitchen; and pet the dog (Rosie) while you're here.

Three Days of Let-Go...

For 3 days this April we’ll come together to let go of all unnecessary self-improvement baggage that we’ve been carrying for years. Through clearly recognizing, acknowledging and releasing the futile search to become more (or less), we’ll encounter an innocence that’s been patiently waiting to resurface. This resurfacing will be aided by self-inquiry sessions, 1:1 meetings and guided outdoor walking meditations (in city and at beachside)… and of course, fire pit gazing.

Our retreat will take place at my home in beautiful White Rock BC Canada (metro Vancouver), which is 35 minutes from Vancouver International Airport (pick-up and drop-off will be provided). Your stay will be at the Best Western Hotel in White Rock where you’ll be given a private room as well as a 10-minute shuttle ride to and from my home each day. From dinner on arrival through lunch on departure, our catered meals will be made with delicious organic ingredients (with vegetarian and gluten-free options to boot).

Accommodations:

Your stay will be at the Best Western Peace Arch Inn which is a short 10-minute shuttle ride to my home. Here you'll be given a room to yourself and can make use of the hotel pool and sauna in the evening. A continental breakfast (fresh pancakes, eggs, choice of breads, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, and coffee) will be served before you're picked up in the morning and brought to the house.

Some Love From Last Retreat...

Retreat FAQ's:

I will be flying in to attend this retreat, which airport should I fly into?

The best airport to fly into is Vancouver International (YVR) since the retreat is being held in White Rock (Metro Vancouver) which is 35 minutes south of the airport. Your arriving flight time should be anytime before 3pm on April 25th and your departing flight time should be anytime after 2pm on April 28th. For excellent rates on flights I recommend using: https://www.skyscanner.net/

I’d like to attend the retreat, but I have no means of transportation after my flight arrives. Are there any transportation options available?

Yes. If you're flying in then we will arrange to pick you up at the airport on the Thursday and drop you back off on the Sunday. Please email me directly (here) after booking with your transportation request.

Will I have to pay for my own meals?

No. The retreat fee covers all of your meals for the duration of your stay. The retreat will be fully catered with fresh wholesome food that’s delicious and made from natural ingredients. If you have any special dietary concerns just let me know. You’ll receive dinner on Thursday after you arrive, and then on Friday and Saturday you’ll receive breakfast, lunch and dinner. On Sunday you’ll receive breakfast and lunch before heading out.

Will I have to pay for my own accommodation?

No. The retreat fee also covers your hotel stay for each night that you're here. You'll be given your own room at the nearby Best Western hotel and will be shuttled back and forth to the retreat each day.

Can I pay for the retreat in installments?

Yes. If it’s easier for you to spread the payment out, you can split the retreat fee into four equal payments over four months. (**this offer will only be available until January 15th)

What if I need to cancel after I’ve booked? Do I get a refund?

Due to the costs involved in organizing this event and the holding of your spot during the booking period, refunds will not be possible. However, if you’re unable to make it to the retreat due to unforeseen circumstances then a credit can be applied to a future retreat with me or to one of my coaching packages.

Will I have a chance to speak with you 1:1?

Yes. I'll make sure each retreat attendee gets a 30-minute 1:1 session with me in addition to the other group activities being held. This is an opportunity to bring up questions that are more unique and personal in nature and specific to your life situation.

Don't You have kids? Won't it be a little noisy in your home during the retreat?

Yes I have kids and no it won't be noisy (my family has happily agreed to check-in at a hotel for the duration of the retreat provided that room service, spa treatments and movies are made available to them).

How will I know if there’s space still available at the retreat?

There are (approx.) 15 spots available for this retreat and once they are all filled I will update this page to reflect that. If you don’t see a notice at the top of this page mentioning that the retreat has been filled, then there are still some spaces available.

Join me this April!

Being able to meet with you online is a gift but the opportunity to share a weekend in-person together can take that experience to a much deeper level. To boot, the collective energy of a group environment is powerful and the effects are palpable. Join me this April for an exploration of innocence; the doorway to freedom.

Peace,

Kyle
