Children's Course in Anapana Meditation

  • PCCL Hall 11335 85 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5B 4S1 Canada (map)

Anapana Meditation is a way to keep the mind cool and calm, by concentrating on one thing, your breath. 

To become the master of your mind, you need some lessons, enough time and a good place to learn how to practice. 

With enough practice, meditation helps to replace bad thoughts and feelings with happy ones. 

My mind is kind of like a video - thoughts just playing on and on. Meditating is like pressing the pause button
— Austin, age 11

History of Vipassana In Alberta

Vipassana courses have been given in Alberta since May of 1996 at several temporary locations. The centre, Dhamma Karuṇā, was purchased in August of 2014 through the generosity of those who embrace the technique in their daily lives. It is one of more than 120 centres worldwide offering courses in Vipassana Meditation, as taught by S.N.Goenka and his assistant teachers in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.
