Weekly Gatherings (TEMPORARILY CANCELLED)
Sunday Night Sittings, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
NEXT GATHERING: DECEMBER 11. See the main page for details.
[Dec 7, 2016 NOTE: We hope to resume regular gatherings soon. Updates will be posted on this website, on our Listserve, and on our Facebook page.]
We practice mindfulness and Engaged Buddhism in the tradition of Zen Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh. We are peer-facilitated and volunteer run, without a formal teacher or leader. We generally meet every Sunday, including holidays. Any (rare) cancellations will be announced on the home page of this website, as well as on our email listserve and Facebook page (click here for more info.) Generally, one may expect some combination of:
- Mindful Stretching
- Sitting Meditation
- Walking Meditation
- Mindful Tea
- Dharma Reading or Study
- Community Sharing
Beginners and newcomers are welcome. We operate on a drop-in, optional-donation basis, and we strive to be accessible for all.
Being Mindful About the Use of Scents: Please practice kindness for those with sensitivities to scented products by refraining from wearing perfumes and similar scented products when practicing with MPC.
If anyone has ideas for a new location for the Mindfulness Practice Community of Vancouver please let us know. Thanks.
After the sitting, we sometimes enjoy an informal meal together at a nearby restaurant.
