    There are approximately 29 Buddhist centers in Toronto, according to the most comprehensive list on the Internet. You can search through these and see if any meet your needs:

    Several of these centers are likely to offer one- and multi-day retreats. There may even be one or two residential centers in which you can live. You’ll need to contact them individually to see if any meet your needs.
    Also, please understand that Buddhist centers come and go, just like everything else in the world. Some of the centers on the list may no longer exist; others may have appeared that are not on the list.

    The basic Buddhist practice and belief is discussed in ‘Falun Gong’. For many ‘Falun Gong’ book readers, they become enlightened to the Buddhist belief. Advanced practice is discussed in Zhuan Falun. About 100 million people practice in over 80 countries worldwide, enjoying a bill of good health through meditation and spiritual practice. Guided meditation demonstration video, meditation music, and books about Falun Gong are free to download from the URL listed below.
    Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School, found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China.
