Quiet Time: Mindfulness at the Movies

In an age of chronic distraction, work burnout, and stress, we all need a moment to refresh and decompress. Enter Quiet Time, a new series designed to nurture mindfulness at the movies. 

Scheduled on Sundays to help you recharge your batteries ahead of the week to come, each Quiet Time session features a guided meditation from Toronto Mindfulness teacher Moustafa Abdelrahman and a specially curated film designed to soothe your mind and activate your senses. Bring a pillow, grab a soothing cup of tea, and leave your phone at home. Give yourself the gift of a little quiet time. 

Series runs Starting May 22

Sunday, May 22, 1:00 PM

Our Quiet Time series begins with a specially recorded guided meditation and this immersive cinematic journey through Canada’s boreal forest and the chorus of life that calls it home. It's a wondrous ode to our country’s iconic wilderness—and a one-way ticket to a calmer, more centered mind.
