Contemplative Studies

We have developed, in partnership with a number of organizations and facilitators, a number of training programs and workshops aimed at providing participants with education and practice within the areas of  contemplative experience. These practices and experience span the medical arts and sciences, neuroscience, therapy, meditation, teaching, and research and offer an opportunity for introspection, developing self-understanding while encouraging social engagement.

“What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.”

Happy Birthday!

One of the most comprehensive meditation teacher training programs is now offered in Toronto. Guided by highly experienced international and local facilitators, participants not only learn the basics of teaching meditation and mindfulness, they are immersed in the tools and techniques of developing meditation and mindfulness programs and classes for mental health, trauma, addictions, marginalized communities. In the process, participants earn 4 additional certificates of meditation training.


Contemplation is the loving sense of this life, this presence and this eternity.
