My life has forever changed since I was fortunate enough to be invited to an introductory meditation class taught by Madhavendra and Ron of Meditation Toronto in 2007. I was searching, as most people are, for peace of mind and happiness. I tried to find happiness through drugs, alcohol, and the opposite sex. My highs were always followed by lows.
At one of the Sunday night gatherings last year I had someone ask me. . . “Are you going up to the meditation retreat over the Christmas holidays?”
Its funny because I had heard of the meditation retreat the past few gatherings and had contemplated going. I for the longest time had been dying to get out of the city and be more surrounded by nature. And couldn’t help but think this was a GREAT opportunity that had been proposed.
Mantra meditation started to become a part of my life about two years ago here in Toronto…I began going to gatherings at a place in Kensington Market every Friday night on and off for a period of time. I would bask in the magical presence of sound vibration that was created by all of the people that attended. The atmosphere was very calming and relaxing and the people that surrounded me were all so humble and kind. . .
