Banner Retreat 2020 (2).png


Is your soul calling you to take space to reset, rejuvenate and reconnect with yourself?

Are you ready to end the inner conflict and love yourself in the deepest possible way?

Would you like more clarity and direction around your life, your relationships and your true purpose?


“Going on Retreat” is a phrase familiar to most serious meditators. It is usually understood as an opportunity to pull back, get inspired, become spacious, look deep within oneself and connect with people with similar interests—our community. Attending retreats regularly starts to form a more permanent foundation from which we begin to act in our daily lives and affect the way we relate to the world. 


Regular retreats can help you cultivate the inner foundation to teach from direct experience. Once that place is established, you can, with authenticity, share insights and your meditation practice through what you teach and by the way you live your life with a sense of presence, purpose and equanimity.


This retreat will be experiential, using a wide range of techniques and practices to explore the depths of who you are through meditation practices and lessons designed to   help you to access inner peace and thrive in your life and relationships.

Daemond Mano - Meditation Teacher Training Director, YogaMcc Owner

Daemond grew up in Calgary, but he is a traveler by trade, having visited over 30 countries in his life. One of his favorite things to do is understand how other people live on this earth. Like most of us, he has often wondered why we are here. Daemond has sat with Monks in the Temples of South East Asia and has spent time with Aboriginals in Australia learning about Dreamtime. He has journeyed with Shamans in Central America and created concoctions with witch doctors in Africa. He has read and researched much in the vein of spirituality and science and connections between the two, a field called Epigenetics. Daemond is also very passionate about building community and safe containers for seekers to grow into the highest vision of themselves. For him this all starts with a foundation of friendship. Daemond's primary practices are Meditation and Breathwork. He is certified to teach Clarity Breathwork, Numa Breathwork, and has studied breathwork at the Omega Institute in New York. He is also certified to teach Active Meditations from Osho Humaniversity in Holland, Systemic & Family Constellations, and was given permission to teach the life's work of Zen Master Nissim Amon, a modality called Trilotherapy, which includes Zen Buddhist meditation. He also enjoys integrating sound into his offerings and is certified by Jonathan Goldman in sound healing. He's very passionate about sharing all these tools with the humans around him that feel called to explore the depths of who we are.

From the heart – the 5-day meditation retreat put on by YogaMcc was an amazing, mind expanding experience! Jeri and Mano created a loving, supportive, open environment that just grew and grew as the days went on. In the beginning, I was a little nervous but excited about the possibilities. This was a mediation retreat, which involved many kinds of meditations like walking meditation, candle gazing, a labrynth meditation, eating meditation, and many, many other types. Perhaps one of the best things was the heart opening work. This happened early on and helped to connect with myself and the other participants. The teachers allowed room for discussions and were highly intuitive into what the group needed.  Part of the retreat involved a silence meditation for about 1.5 days, and this was so refreshing…nothing was expected of you, you just were with yourself, worked with the meditations and activities provided. I chose to shut off my phone and I’m glad I did what a fantastic electronic rest! I hadn’t realized how much I turned it on – how it’s always at hand.  I feel much better prepared to use my phone as a tool, instead of an escape mechanism.  We were provided with meals each day, a comfortable room to sleep in, and beautiful grounds right by the river to sit by. By the time I left, I felt calm, refreshed, loved, and honestly felt like I could do anything!! I highly recommend this retreat! And thank you, thank you, thank you to Jeri, Mano, and fellow participants.
