I'm sad to learn that Snow Lion is closing, but it had a great run, as theatre people say : )- Snow Lion was an oasis of tranquility and peacefulness directly across from the frenetic Pape Subway station. When in transit it was always relaxing to look across at the strings of prayer flags peeping above your garden walls.
The first time I visited Snow Lion was after my wrongful dismissal after serving a decade as a village librarian. As in my past, in times of personal turmoil I turn to Buddhist thought, and I remember wandering up Pape Avenue from the depths of Queen Street to visit the first time. You instantly intuited that I was a kindred soul of some sort, and we recited poems to each other. Several years later you kindly visited the Purdy Country Literary Festivals I was hosting at my ZenRiver Gardens retreat in Marmora. I remember you sharing your poems while standing on the island in the middle of the Crowe River, masterfully reciting your words of wisdom amidst the ebb and flow of the river, time, and history.
Although I'm sure managing Snow Lion was far from a lucrative enterprise, you generously treated several of us to breakfast at The Marmora Inn. Remembering your tale of choking on dessert while a young student at a monastery still makes me chuckle : )-
Namaste, Theordore, to you and all the staff and sangha who created the magic of Snow Lion Meditation Shop.
peace & poetry power!
