Vipassana Meditation - Wednesdays

Held every Wednesday, 7:45-8:45 pm
Cost: 
  No charge. Admittance is FREE for this NON-GUIDED meditation.

Like our guided Metta Meditation class on Sunday evenings, this class is offered as a gift to the community, both from Breathe and from the instructor. There is no charge for this class, and the instructor does not receive compensation.

Vipassana Meditation Vancouver WAVipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living.

Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.

The operation of one's thoughts, feelings, judgements and sensations become clear. Through direct experience, the nature of how one grows or regresses, how one produces suffering or frees oneself from suffering is understood. Life becomes characterized by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.

What to Expect: During this hour-long session, individuals will sit quietly, focusing on their own experience independently. There will be no instruction nor guided meditation. This is an opportunity for you to come and sit in a group in the way that you meditate.

Recommended: We recommend supplementing your meditation practice with regular yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, walking or cardio classes, because it is quite difficult to calm the mind when the body hurts or is in physical discomfort.

Drum Circle - every 3rd Friday

Held every 3rd Friday, 7:00-8:00 pm
Cost:  You can use any Breathe yoga/class pass to attend this session.
You must register in advance. No prior experience is required.

drum circle Vancouver WALike human beings, different drums have different voices.
Come join us as we blend different voices in harmony.

Drumming has the ability to put us in touch with our own natural rhythms, the rhythms of the earth, and the rhythms of the people we choose to drum with.

Taking part in a drumming circle relaxes as well as energizes body and mind, while attuning us to energy we may not be aware of. The rhythmic beating of a drum can move us into new realms of consciousness. There is no right or wrong way to drum, and everyone has the innate ability to create rhythm. When you drum with intention, you'll discover the rhythms that move you.

Friday Night Classes

Friday Night SeriesJoin us for our series of rotating Friday night classes at 7:00pm.

Each class is a stand-alone class (no need to commit to a series), and you can use your regular Breathe class pass for each.  We do require that you sign up in advance, so that the instructor doesn't have to deal with payments on Friday night.  This will help reduce chaos, but also allow us to feature some guest instructors.

Come check out this fun new series and let us know what you think!

Happy Mother's Day!
