Please check our Schedule to see the specific dates these programmes are offered.
1. Introduction to Meditation
This four-week programme is an introduction to the benefits of meditation. It offers students the opportunity to explore different styles of meditation that nurture calm and peace in their lives. Students will learn how to relax, focus and centre their thoughts, de-stress and reap the health benefits that arise from a regular meditation practice.
We are currently taking registrations for the fall and winter of 2017. Please see our SCHEDULE for more information. Each class is from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and is located in the Education Suite of Medical Associates Building in Port Perry.
This session is open to patients who have a family physician with the Medical Associates of Port Perry and is offered at NO CHARGE if you are registered with the Family Health Team. There are only 10 spaces available in each session, so please do not delay in getting a referral from your family physician.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for programme information, or call Judith Sanders, Operations Manager, Family Health Team at (905) 985-2895 #6240 to register.
2. Nurturing Your Meditation Practice
Available to anyone who has, or had, a meditation practice previously and is interested in nurturing their practice. Previous participation in our introductory session is recommended, but not required. During the two week programme, we will review meditation techniques from previous sessions and explore additional ones that support us on the path to greater peace, calm and joy.
Sangha is a wonderful way to maintain your mindfulness practice and create a sense of community amongst people who are journeying the same path as you. Find monthly support for your inner spirit and your mindfulness practices at Sangha. Each hour and a half session (7:00 to 8:30 p.m.) will begin with a guided meditation followed by a brief talk and discussion. The evening will end with another meditation. Please see our schedule for the dates.
