Communicating Straight From the Heart

Through open listening and mindful speech, we can express ourselves in a genuine, truthful and fearless manner, straight from the heart, with directness and a lack of hesitation as well as with gentleness, tenderness and delight. Communicating in this way awakens basic goodness in ourselves and others. 

This is a half-day workshop that includes talks, discussion, meditation instruction and practise.


$25 Full price; $20 concession. Tea, coffee and snacks are provided. 


Our venue is the Eco-House at Ceres in Brunswick. You can find the Eco-House at the end of Lee Street, Brunswick. There is parking nearby, but please allow enough time to find a park, as Sunday around Ceres is usually busy. 


Its good to wear a few layers of clothing that can be adjusted for different temperatures. We will be shoes off, so think about what sock wear will suit you best.

Our visiting teacher:

Shastri Bozica Costigliola first sat down to meditate at a Shambhala Training weekend retreat in Montreal in 1981. She connected immediately with the simplicity and honesty of meditation practice, and the teachings on basic goodness. Bozica has been a Shambhala meditation instructor and teacher since 1985. She is a former co-director of the Ottawa Shambhala Meditation Centre and was appointed a shastri (senior teacher) for Ottawa by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche in 2016. She is also involved in prison outreach at the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre.
