Cancellation of Mindfulness Meditation Sessions for the time being

We have made the difficult decision to suspend our regular meditation sessions for the time being.  With COVID-19 now declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, and with the spread of the virus impacting all aspects of life globally and here at home, we take this decision with everyone’s health and safety in mind.  
Please monitor the website for updates.  Thank you for your continued support.  Please remember to follow the safety guidelines, and remain safe and healthy.

Day of Mindfulness on March 7, 2020

Day of Mindfulness
Mindfulness Trainings
As Our Protection
March 7, 10 am – 3:30 pm
At Canadian Mindfulness Center
1278 St. Clair Ave W. Toronto M5E 1B9

At times, we may see the Five Mindfulness Trainings (precepts) as rules based on ideas of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, which are being imposed on us. Yet, the trainings can also be practised as tools of liberation, based on understanding how the consequences of our actions lead to suffering or happiness. Our openness to the wisdom conveyed in the Mindfulness Trainings is based on whether we perceive them as rules or guiding means.

After reciting the Five Mindfulness Trainings together, we will have an opportunity to share our experience, insights and challenges in applying the trainings to our daily life. We will also enjoy exercises, sitting & walking meditation, lunch, total relaxation.
Please bring:

• light blanket for total relaxation
• small vegetarian dish for potluck lunch and cutlery

New friends are welcomed, please share this information with your friends.
Our practice is based on Dana, suggested donation for the day is 25$.
