Meditation Workshop Series
Join us each month for our Meditation Workshop Series, led by Nash Shamad. Nash focuses on the mind-body connection while fostering a positive, enlightened, and non-judgmental setting open to everyone!
Each workshop meets in the Community Volunteer Boardroom (located on the 2nd floor)
2019 Meditation Workshop Descriptions
Why be stressed out when you can be BLESSED OUT! If you could choose, what would you choose: suffering or nirvana, negative or positive, wrong or right? Learn techniques to calm the body, transcend the mind, and awaken the spirit.
We have the four directions and their four respective colours, and the four seasons but do we know what they mean? Come learn the connections and how we can apply them to our lives!
Connect with the Elemental Spirit of Mother Earth. Using the five elements (earth, water, fire, wind, and spirit), we will connect Mother Earth with our bodies, water with our loving hearts, fire with our egos, wind with our minds, and spirit with our souls.
Awaken your third eye. What is it, does it see only darkness, and can it be decalcified? Learn how to open up, become enlightened and achieve higher consciousness.
Unleash your Kundalini Energy – let it rise from the base of your spine passing through each chakra. Learn sacred mantras that enable this freeing flow of energy towards self-realization.
Are healing crystals only for tree huggers? Which one should I choose and how do I choose the right one? Can crystals change my energy level and frequency? Learn about the multi-energies of crystals to see which ones are the best for you!
Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs:
For Programs that Meet Fewer Than 3 Times
Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Schwartz/Reisman Centre cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, helping to sustain wonderful programs.
For Programs that Meet 3+ Times
You may receive JCC Credit for withdrawal from a program when your cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. Please note there is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations.
- Full JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a Schwartz/Reisman Centre program when a written request is received at least one week before the date of the first class.
- 50% JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a JCC program when a written request is received before the second class.
- After the second class, JCC Credit cannot be granted. (However, you may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space available and with the program director's approval.)
- All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to: The Schwartz Reisman Centre 9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan Ontario, L6A 3Z8, Attn: Registration; or by e-mail to [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request.
*All JCC programs and events are subject to change or cancellation. However, in the event that the JCC must cancel its own program, refunds will be issued. The policy articulated here applies to The Schwartz Reisman Centre only, and does not apply to Centre Camp, The Schwartz Reisman Centre daycare and preschool or The Schwartz Reisman Centre Fitness and Health.
In order to receive the member discount on programs, the Schwartz/Reisman Centre requires that participants be active members at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the registered program(s).
Please be advised that the Schwartz/Reisman Centre operates on a JCC Credit only policy and does not issue any refunds unless otherwise advised and approved by a program director.
JCC Credit applied to your JCC account can be redeemed for any program at the JCC (not including Centre Camp and Schwartz/Reisman Centre daycare and preschool), can be used by any family member on your account, and carries no expiration date.
Registration for Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.
We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
