More Testimonials from 2009 TSR

Here is more feedback from past attendees about TSR:

Toronto Sikh Retreat was a great opportunity to meet the Canadian sangat. Through conversations, laughter, and keertan, I discovered the role of Sikhi in their lives not only as individuals but as a sangat. It inspired me to reflect and grow as a Sikh. We talked about gurbani, history, music, politics, diversity, and snow-it was great! - Ravneet Kaur, USA

It was truly an enjoyable experience last night sitting in the presence of the Guru with all of you. I cannot begin to emphasize how important this venture is and how the retreat is instrumental in the propagating the wisdom and essence of Guru shabad. I knew the moment my son had sat down after bowing to the Guru that he felt this energy.....he was in a place of comfort....he was in the abode of positivity, love, warmth.....Rehras Sahib, was being recited with such love and "rus".....I commend you all - Onkar Singh, Brantford, ON

2009 Toronto Sikh Retreat was an incredible experience; there was a great amount of mutual respect amongst participants. There was no pressure to take part in the activities however the activities and the workshops were so engaging that I would not have missed them. It was a positive environment for older age groups to come together to explore their spirituality. I have no words to describe the open mic night, which incidentally left me laughing for days! - Jaspreet Kaur, Brampton, ON

Don't miss the 2010 Toronto Sikh Retreat - everyone's experience is personal and rejuvenating. Don't miss out!

Testimonials from past attendees

Hear first hand what past attendees had to say about TSR:

Within a few short days, TSR provides much needed comfort and food for one's mind, soul and stomach :) - Jagbir Kaur, Mississauga, ON

The TSR is a great annual retreat! I enjoy attending every year with the interesting themes that are planned and delivered very well. I enjoy the company of the sangat, meeting new people and extending our networks through sikhi and sharing the common pyaar. I would recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking to retreat for a weekend, and to also explore their sikhi and open their mind to new thoughts and ideas that are shared and sparked through experiences and perspectives of the variety of individuals that participate every year. - Harman Singh, Etobicoke

Planning the 2010 Toronto Sikh Retreat

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Its been a while since we've reached out to you from Toronto Sikh Retreats.

Its time to start thinking about the next retreat but also about what else we want TSR to be. There's been lots of discussion around doing events over the course of the year like kirtans, workshops, or conferences. So we need to shape these ideas into concrete plans and then make them happen.

This is where we need your help. Organizing a retreat (or any session), requires a whole team of dedicated and motivated individuals. We'll have many of last year's organizers stay on and they'll provide great experience and continuity, but also really need fresh ideas from new faces. So if you're interested in helping out, get in touch with us. No experience or "Sikhi-expertise" is required; even if you haven't even been to a retreat. Lots of energy and a willingness to get involved is what counts.

So let us know if you're up for the challenge. Its always a lot of work, but always a blast.

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

PS. If you attended the January 2009 retreat, you should have gotten a nice friendly reminder from the most important person in your life. Hopefully it served its purpose in not letting you forget about what you had promised to do this year.
