Please Note: There will be no classes and no open hours July 24-Aug 9. Also, there will be no Wednesday morning class on July 23.
A special time in the middle of your week to rest, reflect and improve your mind. These classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our life and develop inner peace.
Each class consists of two guided meditations and a teaching to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find happiness from within our own mind.
Even though classes are presented in the form of series, each class is self-contained and therefore can be attended individually or as a series.
No pre-registration required.
You are welcome to join our community meal at 1pm by booking before 10:30 am.
Wednesdays • 10.30 – 11:45 am
Connect with Yourself
Most of us are looking forward to this time of year when the sun is out, the fans or AC are on and everything looks so colourful! It’s summer and in Canada it does not feel long enough! We book our vacations, make plans, take time to rest and socialize.
How can we guarantee that we will have an enjoyable summer? Who can promise that their summer will go exactly like they want it?
In this series of classes, we will add practical tools to our happiness tool kit to help us make the most of this time of the year through contemplating wisdom advice from Buddha and through meditating.

Connect with Others
More and more ways of communicating and connect with others appear in our world. But, do we really feel our relationships improving? Are they less complicated? Do we feel closer to others and understand each other more? Are we never feeling lonely? Despite our useful modern technologies, it seems like something is still missing for successful, harmonious relationships. In this series, we will explore ways of improving how we relate to others and how we can feel a deeper connection with everyone by developing the good qualities of our mind.
Aug 13 • Shine your inner light Aug 20 • Opening up to others Aug 27 • Authentic relationships Sept 3 • Non-harmfulness
Classes continue throughout the year.
