The cure for the pain is in the pain.” – Rumi

Join us for an insightful 6-weeks as we investigate the nature of our mind and life experience.

In this course, we will explore befriending ourselves with patience and tenderness, using basic buddhist practices of concentration and insight.

Each session will include guided meditations, a brief talk and time for discussion and Q&A. Participants will be encouraged to cultivate a daily at-home meditation practice.

A simple joy is available to us any time that we can relax — regardless of our external conditions. In fact, learning to relax and be still may be the single most important thing we can do to improve our life, our relationships and ultimately our world.

Please NOTE: The course will be inspired by passages from the book, “Radical Acceptance,” by Tara Brach. You may wish to get a copy of the book, but it is not required reading, and you will also be just fine to simply come to sessions and relax.

Who is leading the sessions?
Heather Fenton (Finlayson)

Heather first met with Buddhist teachings in the Fall of 2000, and has since spent her time avidly exploring the nature of mind. Drawn initially to the teachings on emptiness and the Lojong practices of training the mind, she studied almost exclusively within a westernized-Tibetan tradition for her first decade of practice. Her path then led her in the direction of nondual teachings, Vipassana practices, and generally into a more embodied somatic approach. Most recently, Heather has taken up asana practice and graduated year-long 200-hour yoga teacher training program in December 2017.

Over the years, Heather has led regular meditation sessions and workshops. Her main interest has been to introduce simple meditation and mindfulness practices without cultural or religious trappings, and to encourage others – whatever their background or beliefs – to build and sustain a daily practice of stillness and inner reflection.

Heather is an independent graphic designer by trade, who lives and loves with her husband, teenage stepkids and two teeny tiny wiener dogs in Port Colborne, Ontario.
