What we're about

The mindfulness practices which are simple by nature give us the key to open our inherent capacity to face the challenges of our lives and support us on a path of wellness. Consistent cultivation of the practices results in deep life transformation.

The purpose of this group is to explore, cultivate, and support the Art of Mindfulness Living by providing training in practice and theory of the wisdom traditions of mindfulness and modern psychology, including meditation of breath, body, emotions and thoughts, body scans, mindfulness movement, and cognitive awareness and journaling. This work is based on the principles of MBSR and MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Therapy)

The work as shared in group sessions lead to integration of mindfulness in the day to day living and thus bringing Awareness into all aspects of life.

The group will create a supportive environment where members can be a source of inspiration and motivation for each other to work together and on their own to nurture the mindfulness practices

The group intends to offer the following:

• Facilitating group meditation and mindfulness sessions

• Courses in mindfulness, breathwork and journal writing.

• Group sessions in yoga, and other movement practices

• Free Lecture series about these practices

• Special events - guest speakers; retreats and others at the right time during the group development process

Outdoor Meditation All Seasons at the Fairy Lake Park, Newmarket, Ontario

Meditation outdoor can be a transformative experience. When we prepare ourselves we may feel discomfort. When we arrive it is sheer joy. We can always relate the meditative experience to our daily experiences and cultivate mindfulness.

As a continuation of our program in the library and on zoom for last over five years, we will continue to meet all seasons every Saturday to meditate in the beautiful setting of the Fairly Lake Park at 9:30 am to 10:30 am, rain or shine, snow or sun, or blizzard - unless extreme.

Some mats, cushions, and chairs will be available. Please dress appropriately for the weather, and feel free to bring a mat, cushion, or folding chair if you like, but not necessary.

Scientific research confirms that practicing mindfulness:

=> helps us in accessing and strengthening our inner resources.
=> equips us to respond to life's challenges with resilience and equanimity
=> supports us to gain clarity
=> empowers us to deal with stress effectively
=> brings compassion, wisdom, and power of choice in our life

The benefits of regular mindfulness practise can permeate into all areas of life - physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual. The aspiration behind this program is to alleviate suffering and causes of suffering for all and to bring joy, peace, and ease to everyone's life.
