Tis’ the season to slow down, reflect, and enjoy the benefits of focused meditation time!
A silent meditation retreat, with the supportive presence of other meditators. Enjoy a balance of mindful activity and formal practice time
Retreat Package: 27th December – 30th December (extra nights available when booking)
It’s the holiday season again. Family socializing, lots of food and drink – or, for some of us, pangs of loneliness.
The time between Christmas and New Year’s Day is the perfect time to do a meditation retreat. With a supportive structure that helps you use this precious time well, our holiday season personal retreat package may be just what you’re looking for.
Retreat in silence, with the supportive presence of a different kind of family – other meditators.
Package price starts at $345 CAD in shared accommodation. Some private cabins available. This retreat is based on our Practice and Integrate individual retreat package, and includes three hours per day of *Karma Yoga (mindful service).

“I realized that I was lacking a spiritual family in my life, and put that request out to the universe. When I got the opportunity to spend time at Clear Sky, I realized my request was answered.”
– Michele Cherot, regular Clear Sky retreatant
The last days of 2017 – making the best of them
Perhaps you want to strengthen or re-establish your meditation practice. Maybe you’re in transition, and need some time to slow down and literally take a breath?
Many of us can struggle at this time of year. For some it can be a time of over-indulgence, and others a time of great loneliness or grief. We can easily lose the structure we have through the rest of the year. Happy times with families and friends, for example, can end up in overeating, over-drinking, or conversations that drain our energy. Or, it can be just about “getting through” to January, avoiding the festivities because of the loneliness or hurt we associate with this time.
Either way, we can start the new year in January feeling kind of empty and drained.
If you’re someone who struggles around this time, then maybe you’ve tried good, healthy alternatives – like travelling, or stocking up on good books, or making sure you get exercise and time outside. Maybe you’ve even tried to dedicate some time to meditation and reflection. Yet because our lives are wired to distraction, it can be difficult to fully unplug and sit quietly with ourselves.
Finding a touchstone and a support structure
In our distracted busy world, what we really need is a touchstone to quieten down and reconnect with ourselves, our lives, and the world around us in a deeper way. What’s often missing is a sacred space where we can honor what it means to celebrate endings and new beginnings, with conscious awareness and intention.
We need a container where we can unwind and allow ourselves to recover and re-calibrate to focus on looking at making small but significant changes to your life in 2018.
A supportive container – a silent retreat, but you’re not alone
Clear Sky has been offering a pristine and supportive space for retreats in the beautiful BC Rockies for over 12 years. We’ve learnt what makes a container to support and nourish you, and to aid you to truly refresh and go deeper. We offer:
- A beautiful location, facilities designed for meditation practice, and nourishing food.
- A supportive structure blending personal meditation/reflection time with breathing meditation sits led by experienced instructors. Group meditation sits give extra strength to your practice – and when you’re having a low moment, the group energy supports you.
- The focus of a working monastery – the whole vibe of the center supports you, and our staff and members are working in the background to give you the most successful retreat you can have.
- Meals eaten in silence. Three nutritious, buffet style meals per day.
A personal retreat truly refreshes you
- Space to recover and get your energy back
- You will come back to work full with a sense of calm and focus.
- By taking time out to be in a space that is nourishing can free up blocks and create energy to propel you back into life with renewed zest

Why not re-claim the holiday season to put your principles in order, recharge and come back with a sense of calm and focus? We invite you to take up this part of your hero’s journey to nourish yourself to start 2018 with clarity and better able to make your difference in the world.
