What we're about

The Shambhala Meditation Centre of Mississauga is non-profit group committed to bringing the simple practice of meditation to people. We are part of Shambhala International - a world wide community of over 200 meditation centres. We provide meditation instruction, classes, programs and opportunities to practice meditation.

Sitting Meditation: Join us every Sunday at 10 a.m. or Wednesday at 7 p.m. for free meditation instruction and group meditation practice. No need to RSVP, just show up!

Classes and Programs: The Way of Shambhala is the core path of study offered by our group. It is open to people from all religious backgrounds or no religious background, and requires no commitment to Buddhism. The understanding and practices that we teach within Shambhala are based on human wisdom, and reflect something basic about the human situation, beyond specific cultures, nationalities or religions.

Students are introduced to Buddhist concepts relevant to our modern world and practical for our everyday lives. The courses and programs we offer are designed to stabilize and strengthen our ongoing meditation practice. Course activities such as group discussion, and contemplative exercises allow us to connect to the teachings at an experiential level, and find ways to integrate the path of meditation, wisdom and compassion into our daily lives. We encourage everyone to examine and question the teachings to determine how they are personally relevant.
