Dates: Monday, September 5, 7:30pm ET
What I call “the rock face” is the very edge of your constructed reality. It’s where sense meets non-sense, where the rational comingles with the magical. In this meditation we’ll go down the metaphysical mineshaft in search of the rock face within.

10

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 225 Sterling Road Unit 23, Toronto, ON
Dates: Saturday September 10th, 2-4pm
Be mindful …and do nothing. Cultivate change …and accept things as they are. Make diligent effort …and let go completely. Wait. What?  Meditation instructions can be paradoxical and confusing. Am I doing “non doing” right?  Come to Mosaic Yoga on Saturday September 10th for an in-person (woot!) chance to clear it all up …or get more confused. Probably both.

Dates: Monday, September 12, 7:30pm ET
When we try to let go of something (usually emotional), we can actively push it away, and that pushing is actually a contraction, resulting in us holding on to it more tightly.  Join us as we explore the paradoxes of change, letting go, effort, and ease.

17

Location: Bela Farm, 5750 6th Line Erin, ON N0B 1Z0
Dates: Saturday, September 17th, 11am-5pm
a day of meditation, nature and movement exploration at a beautiful farm just outside of Toronto

Location: online via zoom: https://zoom.us/j/799184864 passcode: 00000 (five zeros)
Dates: Monday, September 19, 7:30pm ET
In today's meditation we'll do something different -- we'll cultivate a breath and body that is simultaneously energetic and calm. In this exploration, we see how these seemingly paradoxically opposite aspects are not only compatible, but actually support each other and are necessary for each other!

21

Location: parks around Toronto!
Dates: Wednesdays May 25, June 22, July 20, August 24, September 21
Join CEC for monthly outdoor meditations with the sunset and other human beings this summer! Bring your own cushion/blanket and we'll sit together at a safe distance.

Dates: Monday, September 26, 7:30pm ET
You could say meditation helps us become a better somebody: Level One. But there are further more paradoxical levels, where you begin to get the sense that the someone aware of these life shenanigans isn’t quite the someone you thought was aware in the first place. Someone seems more like a no one, a big empty aware space: Level Two. Level Three is: “wait, not just empty, also full - full of everybody!” Someone and no one and everyone, all at once.
