Edmonton Insight Meditation will host Saturday morning ‘mini’ retreats in Riverdale beginning this fall.  The morning retreats will be held on the third Saturday of the month at the Riverdale Rink House at 9928 – 92nd St. Sitting and walking meditation periods will alternate with dharma teaching and discussion in the Theravadan Insight Meditation tradition.

All levels are welcome to attend on a drop-in basis. Please bring your own meditation equipment and contribute towards the rental costs on a dana basis. Please plan to arrive 20 minutes early to set up.  If you have any questions or would like further information, please e-mail:
