Spiritual Mindfulness Classes


In the hustle and bustle of modern day life, although people enjoy a rich material life, we often ignore the importance of spiritual growth.  Faced with the pressure of daily living, schooling, career, intimate relationships, marriage, friendship, peers, parent-child relations, children's schoolwork and extracurricular activities, societal expectations, etc., people often feel overwhelmed, at a loss and powerless. It can feel like they don’t know life anymore: what are the goals and values?

We provide a variety of practical spiritual growth classes, learning from the sages, and lectures on classic Chinese culture; including Xinmin class, Zhishan class, Peide class, Xingde class and Chongde class.


Various pieces of classical literature are incorporated in these five years: The Analects, Mencius, The Great Learning, Doctrine of the Mean, Tao Te Ching, Zhuangzi, Heart Sutra, The Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch, Diamond Sutra, Lotus Sutra and many other holy scriptures. These are supplemented with sessions on topics such as Creating A Happy and Fulfilling Life, Healthy Vegetarian Living, Parenting, Living and Maintaining a Healthy Life, Cultivating Oneself and Family, Communication Skills, Bright Wisdom and Enhancing Magnanimity, etc..

The edification of Saints and Buddhas’ philosophy and learning the spirit of kindness, compassion, joy, and giving can nourish the soul, enhance wisdom, rectify faults and tempers, and establish proper values and life goals. These will help us to have a broadened vision, a happy family, harmonious interpersonal relationships, a broader life perspective and meaningful life.

Through the study in the advanced training class, I deeply realized the vastness of the teacher's virtue.



In Vancouver Chongde Buddhist Hall, following the respect and gratitude of the sages, masters and the Bodhisattvas, I cultivate my heart, learn to let go, and concentrate on righteous thoughts.

My actions & perspective as a human offspring to human parents have been enhanced after listening to many of our awesome Tao lecturers.

I'm very appreciative of our excellent team of mentors & fellow colleagues near & far...

Every session, i learned, unlearned, & recalibrated my faulty wiring in my previous limited understanding of many things.

I'm grateful for our time together in this realm. Every Skype session has been super sweet & worthwhile. Thank you.
