We were invited by the North York Women’s Shelter to give a demonstration on meditation to the residents and volunteers. The event was conducted by youth and young professionals. The participants enjoyed the feeling of peace and calmness. For many this was their first experience with meditation. CCA – Canada also donated literature and CDs to the shelter’s library.
Here are some anonymous testimonials from the event:
“I think it was the first time that I concentrated on my breathing and myself. It made me feel calm. I like the speaker’s calmness. After this, I became relaxed.”
“Very easy to learn to do – excellent teachings and felt relaxing – looking forward to learning and practicing.”
“Very interested. Thinking of pursuing courses for future benefits.”
Here is a thank you letter to the organization from the North York Women’s Shelter:
