How Meditation Can Help You

image6

Mindfulness-Awareness Meditation helps settle the mind and bring forth its natural qualities of spaciousness, clarity, and attentiveness.
Practiced for thousands of years, Mindfulness-Awareness Meditation [Shamatha-Vipashyana] is a way to train our minds to remain calm no matter what arises in our lives. It allows us to relax into our inherent goodness.


It is a practice anyone can do. 

Meditation is for everyone

The practice of meditation is found within many traditions throughout the world. Instruction in this practice at St. Andrew's United Church is offered by Shambhala Buddhist Meditation Instructors and follows the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of oral transmission that is part of an unbroken lineage dating back 2,500 years. 

Mindfulness-Awareness Meditation practice is the foundation of all practice within the Shambhala Buddhist community.

Who we are

St. Andrew's United  Church & the North Shore Meditation Group are co-sponsors of this free drop-in meditation group practice. The North Shore Meditation Group was started by authorized Shambhala Buddhist Meditation Instructors in order to offer Mindfulness-Awareness meditation group practice on the North Shore.

Meditation Instructors

Paul Belserene: I was first introduced to meditation in 1974 but it wasn't until 1996 that I truly began practicing diligently. I have been teaching since 2002 and as a resident of West Vancouver am happy to offer opportunities to practice here on the North Shore.


Jennifer Rodrigues: A practitioner within the Shambhala Buddhist tradition since 1993, I was inspired to offer group meditation here so that people who live on the North Shore could participate in meditation practice closer to their home. As a teacher and Meditation Instructor since 2000, it is wonderful to see this group flourish and to have the opportunity to sit and meditate together. 

We look forward to meeting you soon
