Beginner's mind meditation workshop in Gatineau, QC, May 2017

The beginner’s mind is an open mind, unbiased and alive to discoveries. It is not to be outgrown in time but cultivated moment-to- moment. In this workshop, discussions and exercises will guide you from an open mind that reacts and wanders, to a focused mind that sustains and monitors attention, and then to an open mind that is at peace with whatever appears before it. Everyone is welcome. Whether you are new to meditation or an experienced practitioner, you will benefit from cultivating a beginner’s mind. Dr. Alan McAllister, Psychologist, will facilitate the workshop.

Monday, May 29th from 9am to 1pm at St. George's Anglican Church, 111 rue Broadway Est, Gatineau, QC.

Bring a bagged lunch. Admission free, donations to the church accepted. Register by phone or email, 819-893-2917,

An open meditation group meeting regularly in Bancroft

A meditation group open to all meets at 6:15 PM on Tuesdays in the foyer of the United Church, 1 Hastings Street South, in Bancroft . We begin with introductions all around and then have a short reading by a volunteer who is free to chose the reading from a variety of meditation traditions. We then meditate together in silence for 30 minutes. Afterwards, there is time for discussion and demonstrations of meditation techniques.
