What we're about

Calgary IMS Drop-In Meditation Group

Why join a meditation group?Being part of a regular meditation group (or community 'sangha') is one of the best ways to maintain and deepen your practice and connect with a community of friends with interests in exploring meditation and spiritual practices and values. We aim to create a relaxed and supportive space to practice - everyone's welcome!

How does it work?
We meet twice per month - the 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of each month - on the 2nd floor of Christ Church Elbow Park (3602 - 8 St. SW). Drop in! No need to register. Meetings consist of a meditation period, a Dharma talk, time for discussion and Q & A, with a few short (optional) chants at the beginning and end of the meeting.
Thursday group - 7:30 - 8:45: For new meditators as well as more experienced practitioners. Meditation instruction is offered, with shorter meditation periods depending on the experience-level of the evening's participants. Carmen Wyatt and Janice Darling are the teachers for the Thursday night group.
Tuesday group - 7:30 - 9:00: Meditation periods are from 30 - 45 minutes, most often not guided, and Dharma talks may include more advanced topics than the Thursday group, so Tuesdays are more suitable for experienced meditators or newer meditators looking for a challenge. Leslie Ellestad is the teacher for the Tuesday night group.
Cost: Meetings are offered on a 'pay what you can' basis to cover the cost of the facility and to support the teachers, with a suggested amount of $10. No one will be turned away if unable to contribute this amount. Upcoming Dates: Thursdays - Jan. 10, Feb. 14, Mar. 14, 2019 Tuesdays - Jan. 22, Feb. 26, Mar. 26, 2019 To receive e-mail reminders, e-mail info@calgaryims.org and ask to be put on our sangha e-mail list.
