Welcome to North Shore Mindfulness. We are a weekly practice group, or Sangha, located on the north shore of Vancouver. Our practice is inspired by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, a peace activist and teacher of engaged Zen Buddhism.
We practice meditation to cultivate mindfulness in everyday life. Our tradition is to sit quietly and pay attention to our breath. We offer guidance to support your practice. Together, we enjoy sitting and walking meditation, deep listening and speaking, drinking tea mindfully, learning from books, recordings and each other, and deep relaxation.
Newcomers of all ages, whether first time or experienced meditators, are warmly welcomed by the North Shore Mindfulness practice group.
Meetings are volunteer led. Donations are welcomed to cover the room rental. Chairs and mats are available, but if you have a favourite cushion or bench, please bring it along.
When and Where
We meet Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Audio Visual (AV) Room at the West Vancouver Seniors’ Centre (SAC) located at 695 21st Street, West Vancouver, BC. Enter through either of two large entrances and look for the Garden Side Café. The AV room is right across from the café.
From 6:00PM, some Sangha members arrive early to enjoy food and fellowship in the café. You are welcome to bring or buy a meal, snack or drink or just stop by our table for a visit.
From 6:45 PM onward, you are invited to enter the meditation room mindfully, find a seat, and sit in silence until we start at 7:00 PM.
Parking is available in the community centre lot and on the street. The location is a short walk from the bus stop on Marine Drive. The building is wheelchair accessible.
Just drop by any Tuesday evening, or send us a message first. We look forward to seeing you!
