From the depths of our heart we want to be happy all the time and live a meaningful life. How can we do this?

We can do this through training in meditation. Meditation makes our mind peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful we are happy, even if our external conditions are poor.

Learn how to bring the inner peace of meditation into your daily experience. By letting go of the inner causes of our pain and dissatisfaction we can gain the peace and clarity we need to meet life’s challenges.


Please feel free to contact us or drop in at our downtown Meditation Centre at 970 Blanshard Street.
