Mindful Meditation

If you would like to practice, learn about and discuss meditation and mindfulness, please consider joining other kindred spirits once a month.

The regular meeting provides 20 minutes of simple yoga, 30 minutes of breath meditation, and 10 minutes of walking meditation, followed by a short talk on mindfulness and a discussion period. The subject of each talk is listed below.

 

We meet from 7:00 - 9:00 in Westboro (see location on Contact page) on:

  • Sep 26
  • Oct 17
  • 2nd Wednesday of Nov to May

In order to join us, you could either:

-     "drop-in" ($15 cash fee or pay by e-interac in advance); or

-     register for remaining sessions in the year ($12 per session)

 Please join us if meditating and discussing mindfulness might support your practice.
