About Dharma Retreats
Dharma Retreats was founded by Dr. Kate Partridge in 1998. We are a small non-profit venture provides annual meditation retreats in Ontario for people wishing to learn and deepen their practice of Vipassana (Insight Meditation) and Metta (Loving-kindness Meditation).
In July 2016, Laurie Morrison, Leslie Morgan & John Lovas happily joined Kate to help run Dharma Retreats. Despite health challenges, Kate remained actively involved until a month before she died peacefully at home, with her family by her side, on March 5, 2018. We continue on Kate's passion for spreading the experience of meditation to all who are interested.
Each year, we offer a residential (usually 7 days) silent meditation retreat at a location in Southern Ontario. The COVID pandemic has suspended our retreats but we hope to continue in 2024.
As a non-profit organization, and in keeping with the Dharma tradition of dana, our retreat fees cover only the registration fee covers participants' accommodation & meals; the teacher's travel expenses, accommodation & meals; some administrative costs (eg website). Teachers in this tradition do not charge for the teachings - so in addition to the registration fee, participants voluntarily support teachers by way of 'dana'.
Dharma Retreats has an unpaid volunteer board and a retreat manager. (The retreat manager is paid in kind with the cost of the retreat covered by Dharma Retreats).
