Event description

Description

Join our meditation meetup at this peaceful and relaxing space in the downtown east. Our practice is based on the Buddhist Zen tradition and mindfulness technique.

This event is open to all. If you never meditated, please make sure you don't miss the the guided part, when we will help you find the right posture and breathing rhythm, and provide tips to control your thoughts and restlessness. We'll then do some gentle stretching exercises to relax the core muscles.

Then, using images, stories, and myth from different cultures, we explore our mind as we meditate in silence for 10-15 min. At the end, we usually try meditating through recitation or chanting using simple mantras or phrases.

All levels are welcome. You can either sit on a chair or on a meditation cushion. You can bring a change of clothes to make your practice more comfortable. The guided part ends at 7:00 but the space will be open until 8:00 for those who arrive late, wish to continue meditating on their own, or would like to share complimentary healthy snacks and beverages as we talk about our experience.

FREE. There is no cost for this event but donations ($5 suggested) are greatly appreciated.

The venue is called “Centre Place” and is located at 320 Richmond St. E - Suite 101, Toronto, ON, M5A 1P9. We're on a commercial unit of "The Modern" condominium, at the NE corner of Sherbourne and Richmond. Our unit has its own entrance on Richmond, right next to McFarrens Ln. Above the main entrance there's a blue sign that says "Centre Place".
