Welcome

Lotus FlowerWe are a community of experienced and beginning meditation practitioners in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, who find support in sharing our meditation practice.

Our vision is to create a community of inclusivity and belonging in which we learn, practise, and integrate the Theravadan Buddhist teachings of wisdom, compassion, and lovingkindness, in our daily lives and in our communities.

We offer a weekly sitting group and our teacher Jeanne Corrigal offers sessions for beginners, daylong retreats and classes. Our core activities are offered freely, through the dana (generosity) tradition. Each year we offer retreats with visiting teachers who share a wide range of Buddhist practices and viewpoints with our community and the interested public.

In our sangha, we acknowledge that we are all part of Treaty 6, which is the traditional land of the Cree, Nakota, Dakota, and Saulteaux peoples, and the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation.
To learn more, please see the page Reconciliation.

We invite you to join us!
