Welcome to TBC! To help you get started, here’s some information about what we do.
We meet on Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00, in Room 212 at the Carrot Common at 348 Danforth Ave in Toronto.
For those unable to come in-person, we offer an option to join via Zoom. More information on joining in-person or online is available here.
Everyone is welcome to join us in our weekly sangha gathering. There are no prior conditions required for participation with us except the willingness to sit comfortably, quietly and mindfully in silence on either a chair or cushion for 45 minutes. You are most welcome to bring your own meditation cushion and mat.
We begin our weekly sangha gathering with brief chanting and bowing which are optional, then we meditate in silence for 45 minutes. This is followed by a short break in silence. Then the facilitator (a committed lay practitioner) reads from the writings of or plays an audio recording from a respected teacher in the Theravada tradition. This is often followed by a brief discussion. We end each gathering with a short, silent meditation. Afterward, for those who wish, we go to a nearby restaurant for lunch and to socialize.

We start our Sunday morning session with the short Morning chant, and on some days include one of the other chants below at the end. The Chanting Book we use comes from the Abhayagiri Monastery and is available here for download. Feel free to join in the chanting and bowing as you feel comfortable.
(We'd love to hear from you!)
