Explore innovative ways to prioritize your well-being when two charities join forces to bring wellness to the community

The Bright Spot family, you now have new ways to find inner peace and gain wisdom with a partnership between the YMCA of Greater Toronto and the Aga Khan Museum. The two charities partnered to offer a series of mindfulness and educational programs. Leaders in community programming with a focus on inclusion and diversity, this partnership is a natural fit for both organizations. The YMCA of Greater Toronto is pleased to bring together members of the community in new ways to support overall health and well-being.

The YMCA and the Aga Khan Museum will offer both online and in-person mindfulness sessions now that Ontario is in Stage 3 of its Roadmap to Reopen plan. Virtual educational sessions hosted by Aga Khan Museum curators will be offered at The Bright Spot and at the Museum’s virtual museum: #MuseumWithoutWalls.

Explore a peaceful means of practising mindfulness meditation, a method of meditation that combines “probing for inner truth” with physical relaxation.  The educational sessions at The Bright Spot and #MuseumWithoutWalls will take you on a virtual exploration of the Aga Khan Museum with specialized museum curators. These interactive and engaging sessions will explore displays, collections, objects and more.

  • Educational classes start on September 1, 2021, at The Bright Spot.
  • The next mindfulness session happening at the Aga Khan Museum will be on August 18, 2021, at 10 am.
