NEW!! True North Insight's Toronto Black, Indigenous, People of Colour Sangha 

This sangha is open to those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of colour - we welcome beginner meditators and experienced meditators alike!
Our practice is insight meditation (vipassanā) and mindfulness, rooted in Early Buddhist teachings, with openness to other Buddhist traditions. The practice is for everyone, so you don't have to identify as Buddhist to participate.
