About Community Meditation:
Community Meditation is non-profit network of meditation groups. We bring meditation and mindfulness into peoples lives through courses, meditation sittings and group discussions, both in-person and online. By sharing the benefits of mindfulness and awareness, we support the evolution of a wise, caring, and healthy world.
We have groups in several cities including Hamilton, Kingston, Kitchener/Waterloo, Mississauga, Oshawa, and Owen Sound. Our network has existed for over a decade and was previously affiliated with the Shambhala organization.
Our roots are Buddhist, but we draw on many wisdom traditions as well as contemporary psychology and neuroscience. People who come to Community Meditation may have different religious faiths, follow different spiritual traditions or teacher, or have different paths of practice or opinions, including political views. They have different ages and genders, as well as different sexual orientations, and physical, perceptual and mental abilities.
Community Meditation is completely volunteer-based and guided by a council of experienced teachers.
About the Oshawa Group:
Group meditation sitting starts at 7:15 PM, with individual instruction offered in a separate space concurrently. Tea follows at 8:00 PM, with discussion to follow with the evening ending at 9:00 PM. Talk topics (where possible), are posted in Meetup in advance. Topics that may be more suitable for adults only will be noted in advance of the discussion.
You may attend for all or for part, however we ask that you arrive on time as much as possible and enter quietly in order to be respectful of the space and our meditators.
All are welcome to attend, however please note that our current space is not completely accessible (as we are down the stairs in the basement).
Lastly, RSVPs are never accurate - we have a number of regulars that attend. Please RSVP if you are new to the group, so we can look ahead to welcoming you.
Thank you - and we look forward to seeing you soon!
