An in-person daylong retreat
with Jeanne Corrigal

Saturday, May 4, 2024
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Starting at The Salon at Oshun House

Join us for a day of contemplative meditation practises in the parks and elm lined streets of Saskatoon. This urban retreat will explore sitting, walking, and four elements practice as ways of opening to our own nature of spacious awareness. As we strengthen our connection to this innate refuge, we can engage with the ongoing challenges of our world with more steadiness.

This retreat is anchored in Early Buddhist teachings, combined with teachings from Jeanne’s Metis background. Everyone is welcome.

This retreat will begin indoors, and if weather permits, will continue outdoors as much as possible. If weather is not conducive, all of our practices can be done indoors also.

What to bring:
rain gear (just in case!)
warm enough clothing to be outside all day
something to lie on, on the ground
lawn chair or other easily carried sitting gear
water bottle
lunch to eat outdoors


This retreat is offered through mutual generosity. When you register, there will be an opportunity to pay a registration fee to help SIMC cover our administration costs. During the retreat, we will provide information for those who are able to offer financial support to Jeanne.
