Practice meditation and maintain some inner peace on Sundays 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th at 11am – either at the centre or streamed online
Come and learn how we can change our experience of our world by practising meditation in order to create some inner peace.
In this special four week course, we will discover how we can transform our own lives and the lives of others through learning how to develop and maintain a peaceful mind.
Each class includes a relaxing breathing meditation, a teaching, and contemplative meditation.
All ages are welcome since any age can learn meditation and therefore develop and maintain some inner peace.
We will be referencing the book How to Transform Your Life by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso which you can order from tharpa.com/ca.
Alternatively, you can download it for free from howtotyl.com.
Do I have to be a Buddhist to benefit from this class? No. Anyone can learn basic meditation and experience the benefits that come from having a peaceful mind. The teachings and prayers are suitable for everyone, regardless of faith, background or experience.
I’ve not done any meditation before. Don’t worry, everyone begins somewhere. Our classes are suitable for absolute beginners and experienced meditators alike.
Do I need to come to every class? No, each class is self contained and offered on a drop-in basis. Come to as many classes as you like.
What do I need to bring to class? If you wish to take notes, bring a pen and notepad.
How should I dress for class? Come as you are. We ask that shoes be removed prior to entering the meditation room.
