Come and meditate in Guelph this summer. We have comfortable chairs and mats and cushions are available for those who prefer to sit on the floor. Herbal tea and refreshments are available after class if you would like to stay awhile. Everyone is welcome. All classes except for Foundation Program are drop-in.

Drop-in Meditation Classes

If we were truly peaceful inside and had our mind under control, difficult people or circumstances would not be able to disturb this peace, and so we would feel no compulsion to blame anyone or regard them as our enemy.

meditation classes this summer

By developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in daily life, we can transform our lives, improve our relationships with others and look behind appearances to see the way things actually exist. In this way we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life. With compassion and wisdom, like the two wings of a bird, we can quickly reach the enlightened world of a Buddha.
