How to get there


As a part of Hart House's exploration of Forgiveness In Pursuit of Reconciliation and Justice, join us for a guided meditation workshop led by Marco Mascarin.

Learn basic practices to calm the mind and body and generate a feeling of well-being to heal one’s heart and benefit others. This afternoon training will introduce basic mindfulness practice and Metta (Loving-kindness) meditation. Metta (Loving-kindness) meditation: This practice consists of cultivating meditative awareness, then reciting specific words and phrases in order to evoke a “boundless warm-hearted feeling,” to self and others.

As a Buddhist Chaplain at the U of T Multifaith Centre and co-director of the Institute of Traditional Medicine, Marco combines his extensive experience in fine arts, counselling, and eco-theology with more than 20 years of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist practice and training. Currently completing his PhD in Creative Systemic Studies, Marco is a Dharma teacher and counsellor who maintains a private practice integrating MBI (mindfulness-based interventions) with psychotherapy. He has also produced dozens of nationally broadcast documentary films for the CBC on spirituality and contemporary visionaries.
