EDGE Meditation Calgary is a peer lead Dharma Punx/Against the Stream inspired meditation group. We practice Buddhist meditation grounded in the Theravada tradition with an emphasis on how to apply joy, compassion, kindness, equanimity and forgiveness into our daily lives.
We are open to all practices and traditions in effort to create a non-sectarian community. No meditation experience or religious affiliation required.
The Buddha was a revolutionary, a radical advocate for personal and social transformation. He rejected the religious norms of his time and renounced all forms of greed, hatred, and delusion. He dedicated his life to going “against the stream,” to the subversive path of an outlaw transient. He wasn’t afraid to speak out against the ignorance in this world’s political, social, and religious structures, but he did so from a place of love and kindness, from an enlightened compassion that extended to all living beings. The Buddha’s teachings are not a philosophy or a religion; they are a call to action, an invitation to revolution.
