Every Friday at 8:00-9:30AM


Come meditate with us at Camas Books! No one wants to pay to sit in silence with a group, and now you don’t have to.. it’s freeeeee! Doors open at 8:00, bring cozy layers, a blanket and maybe a pillow. Never meditated before? Needn’t be discouraged, each week in the first 15(ish) minutes, a person will share a form of meditation they enjoy practicing, for the rest of the time, you’re welcome to do whatever form you wish, have it be in art, qi gong, staring at the wall, spinning in circles, reading a book… what have you.. You are most welcome to leave as you wish, quietly.


"We are sick with fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas. Meditation is therefore the art of suspending verbal and symbolic thinking for a time, somewhat as a courteous audience will stop talking when a concert is about to begin." -Alan Watts







This event takes place on traditional, unceded W̱SÁNEĆ and Lkwungen territory, as represented today by the Songhees and Esquimalt nations.





Let's make this event a safer space for Indigenous, Black, and people of colour, queer and trans folks, and people of varying physical and cognitive abilities to participate fully and have their perspectives validated. Let's not reproduce white supremacy, colonialism, binary-cis-heteronormativity, ableism, sanism, classism, or ageism.





Entrance: Camas bookshop is accessible at street level, with a 1 inch ramp smoothing over the door sill. The door opens outward and is non-automatic. Let us know if you will need assistance with the door.


Washroom: The single-stall washroom, although on 1 level with the shop, is NOT wheelchair accessible. There is an accessible washroom across the street at Fairway.

Scent: This is a low-scent space so please avoid wearing scents. Here is a great resource on how to do so:

Smoke: If leaving to smoke, please move well away from the doorway to avoid carrying in cigarette smoke when doors open and take 5 minutes to air off clothing before coming back inside.

Lighting: The shop has fluorescent overhead lighting as well as a couple small lamps.

Seating: There are several arm chairs, a couch, a padded swivel office chair, padded wooden chairs, and hard plastic folding chairs.


Kids: Kids are welcome in the space. We have a children’s play area for younger kids as well as games and books for older children.


Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs. We are happy to work with you to make this event accessible for you!
