WE ARE TEMPORARILY PHYSICALLY CLOSED, BUT OUR MEDITATION CLASSES AND COMMUNITY ARE CONTINUING ONLINE

Due to the current worldwide outbreak we have closed the Centre to flatten the curve through social distancing. During this time, we are helping our community stay peaceful and anxiety-free by live-streaming our meditation classes directly to you. We are live-streaming our classes from our Centre in Guelph to towns and cities in Southwestern Ontario outside of the Golden Horseshoe. Join us for our online classes from the comfort of your home and learn meditation methods designed to help us transform all our difficulties into spiritual growth.

Controlling Our Wild Elephant Mind

with Kelsang Kunden

Our mind is like a wild elephant – when powerful feelings or thoughts arise we have no choice but to follow them. Now in these troubled times, worry, fear and stress are increasing rather than decreasing. Learn techniques to control this wild elephant mind and overcome delusions. We can learn to control all the adverse situations we find ourselves in, into a meaningful practice that will increase our compassion and wisdom.
This class is based on Training the Mind in Seven Points by twelfth century Bodhisattva, Geshe Chekhawa. Precious advice on how to overcome delusions by practicing brief but profound essential points.
We offer this class by livestream two times each week to make it easier for people to attend:
Sundays 2:30 – 4pm (first class of the week)
Wednesdays 7 – 8:30pm (second class of the week)
