Staff at The Mindfulness Clinic share their favourite things with you.
|Snow Lion Canada: Meditation supplies.
Snow Lion is a meditation supply store at Pape and Danforth. They sell meditation cushions, books, statues and other “spiritual essentials”. We purchase all of our meditation cushions from Snow Lion–they make their own meditation cushions and mats of excellent quality. If you want to purchase a cushion from them, the staff will take the time to make sure you buy the right cushion for your body and needs.
Snow Lion also offers lectures throughout the year in wisdom teachings on topics such as healing, meditation, death and dying and the nature and journey of transformation. All are offered at no cost.
|Caversham Books: North America’s largest mental health bookstore.
We order many books from Caversham, a bookstore specializing in books for mental health professionals both in-store and by mail throughout the world.
Caversham is a community of often eccentric but knowledgeable staff and interesting, interested customers. They offer books for a wide range of specialties including, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychotherapy, trauma, Jungian analysis and neuroscience.
|Buddhist Geeks: Online Community with Magazine and Podcast
We love this site that features podcasts (with transcriptions) of interviews with contemporary Buddhist thinkers and teachers around the world. The comment threads on each blog post are often just as interesting as the entry itself!
|Elephant Journal: Your guide to a Mindful Life
Elephant Journal is a guide to yoga, organics, sustainability, genuine spirituality, conscious consumerism, fair fashion, the contemplative arts, and anything that encourages living a good life that also happens to be good for others and our planet.
We like this website for its articles, blogs, videos and interviews which are added on a daily basis.

They offer over 280 kinds of loose leaf tea from all over the world. Marisha and Michael are very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. It’s always a pleasure to visit them.

Jeff creates bespoke instruments based on your specifications, and also holds gourd banjo-making workshops throughout the year for those interested in learning about his craft.
|The Interdependence Project: a secular and accessible approach to Buddhist meditation
The Interdependence Project brings a secular and highly accessible approach to studying and practicing Buddhist meditation, psychology, and philosophy. We like their blog and podcast. If you’re in New York, they also offer courses in meditation and Buddhist studies.
