I have setup a Facebook page for those in the area who are interested in connecting with others who meditate or would like to. Just send me an email or a message on Facebook if you want to join. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Conclusion of fall 2015 workshop
We finished the eight week meditation workshop on "the practice of appreciation" under the auspices of the Bancroft Family Health Team. It was well attended throughout. It was a great group of people who seemed to appreciate the Powerpoint presentations. I plan to do another workshop in the spring. It may be a repeat of the appreciation theme, although the treatment will be different enough that I hope that those who previously attended my workshops won't get bored.
