Summer of Love

an 8-week meditation course

Wednesday Evenings | 7-8:30pm
July 10 – August 28, 2019
Stream Yoga + Meditation, 819 Weaver Rd, Port Colborne

In this summer meditation series we will explore a mixed bag of practices for uncovering love, curiosity, light-heartedness and joy. Suitable for new and experienced meditators. Come for the full series, or drop-in to a single class at any time.

In addition to our usual practice of exploring Buddha’s teachings (dharma) in a way that is accessible, simple, nondogmatic and practical; during this 8-week series we will go ‘off road’ a little and sample a few practices from other traditions.

July 17:  Forgiveness (Letting go of Hatred)
July 24:  Unplugging + Relaxing (Yoga Nidra – with Julie Boyse)

August 21:  Lovingkindness (Cultivating goodwill and unconditional friendliness)
August 28:  Resonant Joy (Finding and increasing joy)

What to bring/wear?
If you have a meditation cushion or stool that you are accustomed to using, please bring it along. Bolsters, blankets, yoga mats and blocks are available at the studio. No special clothing is required, but it’s good to be comfortable, so please avoid restrictive clothing.

Can I drop in for one or two sessions only?
Yes! Classes are offered in a series but can also be considered to be ‘self-contained.’ Especially if you have come to previous series with us, and/or you are looking for a group of like-minded people to meditate with — it’s certainly appropriate to simply ‘come when you can.’ Drop-in fee is $15 (includes HST).
