About Friends of the Heart
Friends of the Heart is a group of lay people who actively pursue the deep philosophic and ethical teachings of East and West while maintaining an active, ordinary life within the community.
Our classes and workshops draw from the wisdom of the Buddhist, Christian and Sufi traditions. From the Buddhist path, we take teachings and meditation practice from the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana streams.
We study these systems through meditation, intellectual study and discussion, as well as through engaging our creative talents in movement studies, hatha yoga, visual arts and sound.
As householders, parents, and people leading ordinary lives in the city, we believe it is possible to bring kindness, compassion and awareness into our personal lives as well as into society.
Learn to meditate
We offer meditation instruction that embraces mindfulness teachings of East and West.
Whether you want to learn to meditate or to deepen your meditation practice, we offer classes in Toronto and retreats in rural Ontario to help you reduce stress and find peace, calm and joy.
By emphasizing individual attention, discussion and dialogue in small groups, our classes will help you learn how to live with a compassionate heart and a clear mind while remaining engaged with the ordinary world.
We work in a variety of ways: through meditation, creative movement and yoga, through intellectual study and discussion, through visual art, story telling and sound.
