Friday Evening Meeting with Jim Bedard and Randy Baker – March 22, 2019 @ Quaker House
Mar 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

In his early twenties, Jim’s spiritual angst led him to the experiential practice of meditation: Christian meditation, Transcendental Meditation (TM), and then Zen Buddhist meditation.

In 1980 Jim began practicing Zen meditation and soon after became a student of Roshi Philip Kapleau of the Rochester Zen Center. After completing his formal training in Zen, Jim began practicing with senior Vipassana teachers in the Theravada Buddhist tradition.

Today, Jim offers a balanced, direct approach to practices that point directly to the heart of the teachings. He teaches Insight Meditation at Satipañña Insight Meditation Toronto.

Jim has written two books: Lotus in the Fire and Old Pond: The Teachings of the Elders.
