Welcome to White Rock Mindfulness Practice Community. We gather to practice mindfulness and meditation together as a community inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.
Meditation helps to heal and transform. It helps us to be whole and look deeply into ourselves and around us in order to realize what is there. The energy that is used in meditation is mindfulness; to look deeply is to use mindfulness to look into the heart of things to see their true nature. By looking deeply, one gains insight or wisdom.
We gather every Wednesday evening at Endless Shore Yoga and Meditation Centre from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. for sitting and walking meditation, followed by tea, Dharma study and discussion. We chant together. We engage in deep listening and loving speech.
