Christ Church Elbow Park (map)

Registration now open - class size is limited. See here for details and to register.** This class is for experienced meditators.

The Satipatthana Sutta, on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, is one of the Buddha’s most rich and detailed sets of meditation instructions. Its purpose is to show us how to contemplate in order to open to Nirvana – liberation from the world of ignorance, attachment and suffering.

Through his book, Satipatthana Meditation: A Practice Guide, Bikkhu Analayo will be our guide as we explore the practices and perspectives laid out in the sutta. The course consists of twice monthly group meetings for meditation, Dharma talks, discussion, and small group activities. (And social time, laughter and fun!) Each month there will also be a homework assignment including readings from Analayo’s book and other sources, recorded Dharma talks, as well as meditation and daily life practices to help integrate the teachings into our daily lives.

Facilitator: by Carmen Wyatt

Dates: Two Tuesdays/month, Sept. 17 through Dec. 3, 2019

Gladdening the Mind and Heart: A Path to Liberation - Non-Residential Retreat with Jeanne Corrigal

Wildwood Community Hall (map)

The Buddha’s teaching on wise effort supports freedom in four ways: through preventing and abandoning patterns and states that lead to suffering, and through cultivating and sustaining wholesome states that lead to peace. We will explore these four efforts with particular attention to the wholesome, gladdening states, and how these are themselves an essential part of the path to liberation.

Calgary IMS is excited to welcome Jeanne Corrigal to lead our fall non-residential retreat! To learn more about Jeanne, the retreat, and how to register, click here.

Location: Wildwood Community Hall, 4411 Spruce Dr SW, Calgary

Dates: October 4 - 6, 2019. Friday 7 - 9PM, Saturday 9AM - 5PM, Sunday 9AM - 3PM.
