Insight for Living

Insight for Living is a regular Wednesday evening class at Stream Yoga + Meditation, Port Colborne, led by Heather Finlayson Fenton. These weekly insight (vipassana) meditation sessions are designed to help you start and/or support a regular at-home meditation practice, and to learn or gain confidence with mindfulness habits that can transform your life. Suitable for new or experienced meditators.

The support of a community (sangha) of meditators is a key feature of our path to ‘awakening’ or ‘liberation.’ Benefits include: connection with others, accountability, shared wisdom, being inspired or inspiring others. Our Stream sangha has been meeting regularly on Wednesday evenings since March 2018.

If you are interested in attending (in person or online through zoom), the sessions are 1 hour in length and start at 6:30pm EST, Wednesdays. Although there is a fee associated with attending, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you need support, please ask.

We also meet the last Sunday of each month 10:30am-12:30pm EST for a Dharma Study Group, which includes seated and walking meditations, along with a dharma talk and group discussion. Everyone is welcome. The Dharma Study Group is offered in the traditional Buddhist manner: freely, by donation (dana).
