September

2

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, September 2, 7:30pm
Our inner narrators often work hard, writing the stories of our days in real time, explaining and concocting, making meaning from our sensory input. Tonight we’ll turn the meditative lens on the storytelling engines of our brains.

9

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, September 9, 7:30pm
Is anything about you is the same as yesterday? As last year? As your earliest childhood memory? You shed trillions of cells every day. Your size, shape, and voice keep changing, as do the contents of your thoughts and feelings. They all change from from moment to moment, day to day, year to year.  And yet, there is a thread that runs through it all.

Location: The Bentway – Strachan Gate 250 Fort York Boulevard Toronto, ON
Dates: September 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 15th, 2019, 7:30 and 9pm
From September 10-15, The Bentway brings the Moon under the Gardiner with a presentation of Museum of the Moon – a seven-metre wide touring sculptural work by UK artist Luke Jerram, which fuses lunar imagery to bring the moon’s surface to life on earth. The Consciousness Explorers Club will be offering nightly moonlight meditation sessions during the installation!

16

Dates: Monday, September 16, 7:30pm
There are at least as many bits of advice about how to meditate as there are on how to write stories.  The most important rule, though, is shared by each: ass to chair. Or cushion, depending. From these, answers emerge.  Questions. Characters. Plot lines.

23

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, September 23, 7:30pm
Most often in meditation we spend our time trying to silence our monkey mind, or at the very least, find a little more space in between all those thoughts. So what happens when those rampant thoughts become the object of our focus?

28

Location: Northern District Library, Gwen Liu Room. 40 Orchard View Boulevard. Toronto, ON
Dates: Saturday, September 28th, 2019. 9:30am-4:30pm
Emerging research suggests that mindfulness interventions can help or hinder trauma survivors, raising a crucial question for mindfulness educators everywhere: How can you be prepared to minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits at the same time? Designed for wellness professionals, this one-day workshop--led by author and trauma specialist, David Treleaven, PhD--will equip you with the tools you need to offer mindfulness in a safe, effective, trauma-sensitive way.

29

Location: 303 Augusta Ave, Kensington Market, Toronto ON
Dates: Sunday, September 29th, 2:30-7pm
Meditate and dance your face off at the best block party in the city! A meditation flashmob primes the party, then jubilation overflows onto the street all day. Kid-friendly, cosmic, the usual... 

30

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, September 30, 7:30pm
This month we’ve been exploring our own stories and how they relate to reality. Tonight we’re going to move between building the stories up, and noticing what’s left when we let them fall away. 

November

Dates: Saturday, November 9th 2019, 9:30am - 4:30pm
Join us for a full day of practice, fun, and insight with Shinzen Young, one of the most well-respected meditation teachers in North America, and the CEC’s prime mentor and much-loved uber-nerd. In this experiential workshop, we'll explore the nature of happiness, both the ordinary happiness that depends on conditions and the extraordinary happiness that is independent of conditions.
