Event description

Description

During this talk Dave will discuss the process of integrating heart practices within the four foundations of mindfulness.

Mindfulness practice unites the steadiness of concentration with the immediacy of moment to moment experience. As we learn to collect the body and mind, intuitive wisdom arises. This allows us to open to the truth of each moment’s experience within and around us. Metta (kind-friendliness) meditation practice calls forth the beautiful spiritual emotions within our heart: kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. Mindfulness of these qualities strengthens and brings them into fruition. This process guides our thoughts, attitudes and behaviors into the direction of awakening to our full potential.

The suggested event donation is $20. (Dana is a term for generosity, or freely offered giving.). Dana can also be offered at the event. Please use your best efforts to pay the suggested donation or another heartfelt amount. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay.

FAQ

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

PARKING – Parking downtown can be a challenge. There is paid street parking on 12th Avenue and on nearby streets (no parking on 12th Ave. during rush hour 7:00-8:30 and 15:30-18:00) Street parking is free after 6 pm Monday – Saturday and free all day on Sundays. There is also an accessibility parking spot located directly in front of our building.

BIKE – 12th Ave is a part of the Calgary Cycle Track Network offering safer bike route access to the centre. There are metal bike parking rails on the sidewalk and next to the driveway in front of the building. If you need more secure parking for your bike during business hours you can ask admin staff to help find a spot in the back yard.

TRANSIT - The C-train and many bus routes arrive on 1st ave and 7th street SW which is a four block walk to CommunityWise. There is also a #6 bus stop on 1st Street SW and 12th Avenue SW.
