    Buddha, Body and Brain

    The practice and health benefits of Mindfulness Meditation has gained much attention in the last decade in the western world. The popularity of Jon Kat Zinn’s courses in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, have lead neuroscientists to validate the effects of meditation in the brain.

    In this course we will experience the health benefits of the meditative practices of, “paying attention on purpose, in the moment, without judgement”, as well as the benefits to health and well being of paying attention to the transitory nature of experience. The connection of these processes to the brain will also be discussed.
    All are welcome.

    HUMAN CONFLICT AND ITS IMPACT

    Throughout the ages, humankind has engaged in conflict and wars that have shaped the course of history. From the building and dismantling of empires and nations through to the dissemination of strongly held ideologies, ordinary people have been caught up in extraordinary events – from leaders to despots; from generals to soldiers; and from those who aspire to power and greatness through to everyday citizens. Having previously looked at Canada’s involvement in 20th century conflicts, the group continues to expand its interests – looking at conflict and its ramifications across the centuries and around the world.

    Registration is limited to 18 participants.

    Readers Theatre

    Readers Theatre is for those who enjoy reading aloud with expression. It requires only the voice to provide meaning to the text.

    As a group, we have evolved from reading complete plays to reading scenes or short plays.  This gives us the opportunity to bring our interpretation to the character and scene.  Our intent is that we should all participate and have fun.

    Our Lives, Our Stories Group 2

    Our life stories may not have changed the course of history, but our stories shape us. We want to invite you to be part of a group interested in writing stories based on our life experiences. We will share and discuss approaches to writing our memories. What gives our stories life will be explored together. As a group we will use prompts, old pictures and special mementos to start our writing process. Some of our writing can be done in the meeting and more can be done at home between meetings. We will be sharing our writing by providing an audience for each other. We hope, through practice and encouragement, to improve our written stories. For the full web page click here.

    Inner Peace

    The purpose of Yoga and many related practices is to connect to your inner source of uncaused peace and joy.  The easiest way to do this is through meditation and its sister practice, mindfulness.  Over 40 years of scientific research have clearly demonstrated the associated social and health benefits of these practices.

    In this course we will explore the ideas behind these ancient practices, and the modern understandings about how and why they work on both your inner and outer world.  Each session will include a period of meditation to allow participants the opportunity to experience the benefits for themselves.

    Philosophy of Religion 

    We will explore varying conceptions of the divine; the significance of religious experience; proposed proofs and disproofs of God’s existence; issues of pluralism, diversity and tolerance; struggles over religiously motivated terrorism; and conceptions of immortality.

    Our discussions will be of interest to religious believers and non-believers alike. An attraction in the past has been the calm and respectful atmosphere in which various ideas and commitments are considered. As a basis for our explorations of these themes, readings from Internet sources (encyclopedia and others) will be recommended.
