Who are we?

 

True Peace Toronto is a group of mindfulness practitioners who meet to practice and learn mindfulness meditation together. Our practice is based on the Zen Buddhist teachings of the Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh. We come from a variety of backgrounds and religious traditions.

Mindfulness

 

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing.

 

In practicing together as a Sangha, as a community, our practice of mindfulness becomes more joyful, relaxed and steady. We are bells of mindfulness for each other, supporting and reminding each other along the path of practice. With the support of the community, we can practice to cultivate peace and joy within and around us, as a gift for all of those we love and care for. We can cultivate our solidity and freedom - solid in our deepest aspiration and free from our fears, misunderstandings and our suffering.
