Ken is known by many in the Guelph community as the friendly Buddhist bookseller at the Bookshelf. Ken has been facilitating meditation groups in Guelph since the late 1980s, more prominently at Living Yoga & Health on Sunday mornings. His meditation practice is rooted in the Mahayana Tibetan Buddhist tradition, however Ken’s teaching is ecumenical with strong influences from Western Theravada Buddhism, Jungian psychology, and Roman Stoicism. Ken’s classes are warm and insightful; offering anecdotes and teachings that reflect how meditation can transform our minds and hearts so that we can live with more compassion and less suffering. Together with his wife, Jacqueline Gilbey, he is co-director of Arrive Yoga & Mindfulness. For more information, please see Ken’s website www.agoodheart.ca.
