The 519 Community Centre

Hi, Our meeting location is at 519 Church Street Community Centre(Church Street just north of Wellesley. Nearest subway station is Wellesley Station), at Room 301. You can ask the information desk about the location of the room because on rare occasions based on the center's programs the room might change. The meeting starts every SUNDAY at 3 p.m. with mindfulness meditation which is calming and soothing. Then we will discuss different aspects of social anxiety, anxiety and other questions raised by members. Everybody is welcome to participate, but if you feel anxious, there is no pressure to take part in the discussions and you can just observe. This is a friendly environment for shy people and we do our best to help each other in any way possible. Many good friendships have started in our group. Please if you can afford it make a small donation to the group at the end of the meeting by putting it in the donation box on the table. Also if you can, bring a snack to share with other members. The meeting ends at 4:30. After the meeting, many of our members go to a coffee shop to socialize. Tim Hortons coffeeshop is located at 56 Wellesley St W Unit 104. You are welcome to join us there.
