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

NEW!! True North Insight's Toronto BIPOC Sangha - open to those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of colour - we welcome new meditators and experienced meditators alike!

Every 3rd Sunday of the month (next one on Feb 16th, followed by Mar 15th, etc.)


Eight Branches Academy of Eastern Medicine, Dojo (just off the reception area), 112 Merton St., 3rd floor (Yonge/Davisville)

There are steps in front, but there is a ramp right next door that will lead you to the front door. There is an elevator once you enter the lobby, and accessible gender neutral washrooms on the 2nd floor (with access key, provided). The washrooms on the 3rd floor are not accessible, scent-free or gender neutral. Davisville subway station is accessible, and there is metered parking on Merton St.

The teachings will always be freely offered! However, if you have the means and would like to offer dana (generosity) to be used for the BIPOC sangha's monthly space rental and any other upcoming needs for the group, there will always be a donation box that you can put cash into, or you can send an e-transfer or paypal to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (important: please make a note that it is for the Toronto BIPOC sangha, unless you wish to donate to TNI's General Fund)

For now, the sangha will primarily be peer-led (by experienced meditators, supported by Dawn Mauricio), and may include guided meditation, silent meditation, audio recordings of dharma talks by known teachers, etc. Dawn has committed to supporting the sangha, but she lives in Montreal so cannot come often. She will be joining us next in June, in person.

Chairs will be available for those who need them. There are some meditation cushions available, but it's a good idea to bring your own cushion or bench in case we run out. The floor is padded. No shoes, food or drink in the meditation room. Please do not use scented products when coming.
