Mindfulness is a form of meditation rooted in early Buddhist teachings. It is a way of cultivating awareness and understanding of oneself and others that fosters compassion, well-being and inner freedom.
Over the summer as Viveka is away, we will continue to meet on Mondays. Lay persons will guide the group in meditation. Following this, we will read together, based on suggestions from Viveka. If questions arise, Viveka is available via email to guide us.
The three jewels of Buddhism are the Buddha (the enlightened teacher), the dharma (the teachings), and the sangha (the community). We hope you'll continue to join us in community as we practice together, and as we contemplate the path.
Are you wondering what is Buddhism? Here's a great primer, on the Tricycle website.
Viveka is a Buddhist monk who teaches mindfulness and compassionate living. He began exploring meditation in the early 90’s, attended his first retreat in 2002, and ordained with Sayadaw U Tejaniya in 2013. Over a 20-year period, he was fortunate to train with various well-respected lay teachers and Buddhist masters. Five years ago he began offering meditation retreats, weekly sessions, and facilitating Insight Dialogue events internationally. Currently, he lives in Eastern Canada.
