What we're about

This is a group for everyone interested in the study and practice of mindfulness meditation, insight meditation and vajrayana meditation. We also offer teaching, reflection and debate on Buddhist philosophy which covers the core practices of compassion, loving-kindness, patience, generosity, and joyous effort as well as more advanced philosophies such as the four noble truths, the stages of the path to enlightenment, and the ultimate nature of phenomena. Our spiritual teacher, Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe, is a fully qualified Tibetan Buddhist teacher (and monk) who studied and served at Namgyal Monastery in Dharamsala, India for 30 years. We operate the Alberta Centre for Peace and Meditation at 11403-101 Street in Edmonton.
