2019

March

2

Location: Mosaic Yoga - 225 Sterling Rd,#23
Dates: Saturday, March 2nd, 1:30-5:30pm
In this half day retreat, we'll explore your reasons for meditating (or wanting to!), the techniques that support them and the obstacles that stand in your way. Deepen your existing practice, or kickstart a new one! Treat yourself to four hours of quiet in the heart of the city, alternating between gentle guidance, silent sitting, moving meditations and community connection.

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, March 4, 7:30pm
Sometimes when we are so busy seeking - the next streetcar, the next job, the next relationship, the next weekend - we can miss what our heart is trying to tell us. For this inquiry meditation, we will delve into our heartspace, drop in a question, and sit back and listen to our hearts!

11

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, March 11, 7:30pm
This Monday night, your CHALLENGE (should you choose to accept it) is to very lightly and delicately stay aware of the present moment, for 35 whole minutes, despite the artful shenanigans of yonder mind and yonder world, which will endeavour in their usual charming way to take us up and take us down and take us, frankly, all around. We notice and accept, and then, as a reward ... we party! And by party, I mean we close our eyes and allow Toronto Sound Journey practitioners Jennifer Spencer and Katie Hamilton to take us through a series of weird and beautiful frequencies with their "crystal alchemy bowls, chimes and gong."

18

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, March 18, 7:30pm
With time spent calling our attention again and again to the now, it can appear that things happen less TO us, and more through. Minor annoyances, visions of the past or anticipations of the future rise and fall like the whine of  passing ambulance. On what window does this experience rise? Is it the same plane as what peers through it? We’ll hold the lamp to ourselves, look for reflection.

25

Location: Mosaic Yoga, 23-225 Sterling Rd
Dates: Monday, March 25, 7:30pm
In this meditation practice we will explore our beliefs about who we are and who we want to become, and then come back to the simple practice of Being, seeing how much we can let go of our intention on becoming.

April

5

Location: Mosaic Yoga - 225 Sterling Rd,#23
Dates: Friday April 5th, 7-10pm. Saturday April 6th, 10am-4pm. Sunday April 7th, 10am-4pm
The world is crazy.  Meditation is sanity. The intention of this non-residential weekend training  is to empower everyone – including people not remotely interested in becoming a “teacher” –  to think about and care for their own mental health and the mental health of others. Learning to guide meditation practice is an excellent way to do both. As we get clearer about the practice of guiding a meditation, our own practice deepens immeasurably.

July

11

Location: Ecology Retreat Centre
Dates: July 11th to July 14th, 2019
With a mix of guidance and silent practice, explore the fine grains of feeling, sound, rest, surrender, play, loving-kindness, then let the insights build while activating them in a community of fellow explorers intent on taking what they learn on the cushion into their lives. Not a retreat. This is an ADVANCE!
