What we're about
Dharma Friends supports silent meditation practice in Toronto's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and allied community, based in diverse Buddhist and mindfulness philosophies and methods. We cultivate a social environment that is inclusive and caring, and welcome anyone who embraces LGBT people as equals.
We are run by a volunteer committee of members, who take turns facilitating our weekly silent sitting and walking meditations. We host a few speakers each year, but largely serve as a space and community to support individually led meditation practice.
There is no fee or procedure required to attend our group, although donations are gratefully accepted. Funds go toward visiting speakers, and to cover costs such as tea, cookies, and insurance.
Dharma Friends meets each Wednesday evening:
177 Mutual Street, 2nd floor community room, entry code 270.
The room opens at 7:00pm, and our sittings start promptly at 7:30.
