Meditate with Pride

Hello Meditation friends,

The Pride Parade and Festival are happening this coming Sunday (July 9) in downtown Victoria.  A few of us who have been meeting for meditation this summer will host a Meditation Circle on the lawn of MacDonald Park, in James Bay, site of the Pride Festival (MAP), from 1-5pm.  The Parade will start from Centennial Square at noon, and weave over to McDonald Park where the Festival (and our Meditation Circle) will be held. Come and find us and sit in meditation for a while!  I need a couple of volunteers to haul cushions from the Chapel at 11am and set up the Circle at the park and then join the parade.  Please let me know if you can help!

Meditate with Pride Sunday, July 9 1-5pm, McDonald Park. Come and join us for a few minutes amidst the festival celebrations – to meditate and hold our hearts and minds in compassionate solidarity with our diverse community!
