Shown here is the calendar for special events affiliated with CEC, including Courses and Retreats.
We also offer meditations every Monday night in Toronto.
Jeff: I love pop music. My friends play me some hip electro banger I’m like ‘ya ok,’ but when I hear Carlye Rae Jepsen Cut to the Feeling my inner teenage girl goes mental (never mind when Selena Gomez samples the Talking-Heads – sick!) I love these songs because they make me feel free. They make me realize that at anytime I can actually kick off my leg warmers and do cartwheels down the sidewalk. That in a million different ways I imagine I’m limited and constrained and that I must act or be a certain way but really, really, at anytime I can just … step off. Step off the ride. And the world will hold me. I won’t fall off into outer space, or lose my work, or my friends, although I may slightly damage my credibility when I do Freddy Mercury impressions. So: what is this freedom exactly, and what does it means to step off the ride when we have not history and responsibilities and all the rest of it? I’m not actually sure – maybe you know. Show me this Monday, first in stillness, and then in demented community movement.More Info
Kevin: In this practice we’re going to see how much we can expand our listening – insofar as what we are listening to, AND what we are listening with – and see how it feels to listen with the whole body and beyond. After that, we’ll wrap our body-ears around some familiar sounds and songs and see if they are as familiar as we thought.More Info
It’s December 14th so let’s party about it. Come on. Hanukkah’ll be here, Christmas is on the way, soon it’ll be all kindsaaa Kwanzaaaaaaa. Did we mention it’s a fundraiser for the CEC? As you can probably tell, we’re going to come up with an excuse for you to join us, so you might as well just come. Our best CEC celebrators have a beautiful venue lined up in Kensington Market, the usual soul selectors heating up hot crossed beats for the dance floor.More Info
For our final CEC sit of 2017, Erin and James and Jeff will band together to co-create a meditative exploration into spontaneous flow. Then we’ll all let loose in a chaotic cacophony of raucous rejoicing…rejoicing that may involve a large number of pillows.More Info
CEC has a new home for the new year at Mosaic Yoga Studio. Just to add to the pile of shiny newness, our intrepid founder Jeff Warren’s new book Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics is out and we’re feting it with a non-book-launch book launch. So come out and greet the new year with Jeff’s off the cuff rambles and unfiltered anecdotes about touring across the US for 10 days on a rock-star bus, dropping into meditative states and converting all the Americans he can into ninja-level meditators in an effort to save the world from itself. Or something like that.More Info
