In-person short retreats are held in local venues. They are non-residential retreats, meaning that participants attend during the day and return home in the evening.
Short retreats offer participants the opportunity for structured practice in a group setting with an experienced teacher. Unless otherwise indicated these retreats are suitable for beginners to experienced meditators.

Long retreats are intensive retreats with a minimum of three full days of practice. BCIMS offers long retreats either online or in-person.
In-person residential retreats are held at a retreat centre where the majority of participants stay for the duration of the retreat. Some retreats also offer a limited number of commuter spaces at a reduced rate for participants who do not need accommodation.
Long retreats feature a limited number of attendees, allowing participants to immerse themselves in practice for an extended period of time and to engage in practice interviews with teachers.
