Calgary IMS Drop-in Meditation Group

2nd Floor of Christ Church Elbow Park (map)

Belonging to a meditation group is a great support for your practice! Join us the 2nd Thursday of each month for meditation, a Dharma talk and Q&A/group discussion, with a little (optional) chanting at the beginning and the end.

Thursday nights are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced meditators. There will be meditation instruction and shorter meditation periods depending on the experience level in the group.

This fall, we're exploring the 'Three Characteristics' of life: Impermanence, Unsatisfactoriness, and Non-self (the impersonal nature of reality).

Teachers: Janice Darling and Carmen Wyatt

7:30 - 8:45

Cost: Pay what you can. The suggested amount is $10, but anyone unable to pay this amount will not be turned away. Money recieved goes toward the facility rental fees and to support the teachers.

Location: 2nd floor at Christ Church Elbow Park - enter the west door and go up the stairs or take the elevator down the hall and to the right. Turn right at the end of the hall once you're upstairs. Free on-street parking and in a lot in the alley behind the church.
