DUE TO FORECASTED FREEZING RAIN ON SUNDAY FEBRUARY 11TH, THE MEDITATION WORKSHOP SERVICE IS CANCELLED!
Have you wondered if there has been a wonderful and ‘proper’ way to meditate? Do you know the health benefits of meditation? We are pleased to offer a workshop on Mindful Meditation by Ray Nakano on Sunday February 11th at 11:00am instead of a traditional Sunday Jodo Shinshu service.
In our Jodo Shinshu tradition, we do not have a specific meditation practice. We often use a moment of silent reflection prior to our service to clear our minds and bring us to the present so that we may receive the Dharma. Many of our Jodo Shinshu temples across North America offer some meditation workshops to supplement the silent meditation and chanting that we normally have at our Sunday services. Meditation can bring our stress levels down, oxygenate our minds and body and help centre or ground us to be aware of ourselves and our surroundings.
Ray Nakano offers a meditation workshop Thursday evenings at the temple from 7 – 9pm and it is been a wonderful and enriching experience for many who attend. Now you can take part in Ray’s workshops’ offerings on Sunday February 11th at 11:00am in the Hondo (worship hall).
<Please note that there is no service on this day>
