Walking Into Metro Vancouver
In order to make it possible for greater numbers of community members to learn meditation, Vancouver Bodhi Meditation Center has set up several Energy Bagua practice locations. Since January 2016, practitioners can go to Renfrew Community Center, Kitsilano Community Center, Richmond City Center, Hamilton Community Center, and the White Rock Community Center for a weekly free session of Energy Bagua. The hour-long practice is followed by a half hour of The Meditation of Purity. The combination of the dynamic walking meditation and the static sitting meditation provides students with unprecedented ease and vitality, so they emerge like a fully charged battery.
Within a year, these five community centers held 21 Energy Bagua courses. Having a variety of practice locations has made it convenient for many people from all walks of life to participate. Grateful beneficiaries have gradually joined the volunteer team, helping to lead new students. Through word of mouth, Energy Bagua has become a common practice in many parts of Metro Vancouver.
