(Please note change of time from what was previously announced.)
The spring session of the Bancroft meditation group sponsored by the Bancroft Family Health Team will begin on Wednesday May 1st and meet every Wednesday evening from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM until June 26th at 15 Billa Street. The group will be facilitated by Dr. McAllister and is open to members of the North Hastings community. Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome. There is no charge. The format will be flexible and will include instruction in meditation, meditation together and discussion of issues related to day-to-day practice. The theme of this session will be "opening to insight," bridging from meditation as health enhancing and stress relieving to meditation as a spiritual practice.
This blog chronicles the activities of a meditation group in Bancroft, Ontario and provides instruction in insight meditation. Meditation concepts are explained in terms of Western psychology and in terms of the Buddhist concepts from which this style of meditation derives. Dr. Alan McAllister, a psychologist practicing in Bancroft, is the author of the blog and the facilitator of the group which meets periodically for 8-10 sessions twice a year.
