Victoria Shambhala Centre Open House
Open house happens every Wednesday, with public sitting meditation from 7-8pm followed by a talk and discussion from 8-9pm. Tea is served during the discussion. Shambhala Buddhist Teachers discuss the connection between contemplative practice and everyday life. Come at 6:45 PM if you to join in with the group meditation instruction. Open house is a great way to get a feel for the place. Open House is free, but donations are graciously accepted e.g. $5 in the donation box is one of the very few habitual patterns we meditators encourage :). But no one is counting, just come and sit. (Open house happens every week so I have turned off automatic reminders to avoid driving people crazy.)

What we're about

Shambhala is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be uncovered in daily life through the practice of sitting meditation and other contemplative arts so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society. The Victoria Shambhala Centre is part of a global network of people dedicated to recognizing the basic goodness of all and revealing that goodness in every area of personal and societal life. We invite you to join us in celebrating this journey of discovery.
