Meditation group welcomes members

Meditation group in Ashcroft meets once a month on the last Friday.

The Plum Village Meditation Group was formed as a result of a retreat three of us attended when Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk,  was in Vancouver at UBC in the summer of 2011. Our time of learning from this most humble and spiritual teacher and meditating together with nearly 1,000 other people was a powerful experience for everyone in attendance.

There was interest in the community about meditation and we began a monthly time of meeting where we spend time watching a segment of a DVD from one of the talks given by Thich Nhat Hanh at the retreat and then we practice meditation with whoever has joined us for the evening.

The group is open to anyone from beginner to experienced practitioner – if you have ever wondered about meditation, come, bring a friend and learn about presence and becoming.

We meet the last Friday of each month (this time Feb. 27) at 7 pm at St Alban’s Meeting Room (501 Brink Street) and we end by 8:30 pm.

It is a lovely time of gathering and spending intentional time together . . .
