A Meditation Group for the Modern World
Luminous Ground is a training ground for developing the skills to be present in your life and develop leadership capabilities to effect real change in the world. We are located in the heart of the city and no experience is necessary to attend.
LG is a registered Buddhist charity that practices meditation techniques from all the major schools of Buddhism and brings them to life in interactive and integrative ways. This type of group is sometimes known as a “meta-sangha”.
You are welcome here whether you are just curious and starting to explore, you already have a meditative practice, or if you would like to train to become a meditation instructor yourself.
We organize meditation retreats and classes, as well as provide curated recommendations of teachers, books, and health professionals. One-on-one coaching/mentoring is also available for those who wish to go deeper in their practice.
Meditation Class Every Wednesday
We meet every Wednesday from 7-9pm at 553 Queen St. West, 3rd floor. $10 (free the first time). Here’s a map.
Why practice meditation?
Understanding and achieving your potential reaches beyond intelligence, beauty, or wealth. It requires refined emotional intelligence found through true connection to yourself and other people. Here it is possible to learn spiritual methods that open a universe of possibilities, connecting joyfulness and learning in a safe and light-hearted atmosphere.
Here you will learn to ‘walk the talk’ and develop a spiritual practice that is sustainable and integrated in behaviours and actions.
The results of a regular meditation practice
The development of our own timeless wisdom that supports balanced and holistic living, clear and fearless purpose and action, and an authentic ever-present feeling of lightness and happiness.
We learn how to transmit that wisdom to others, both formally and informally.
