Welcome to the

Shambhala Meditation Centre of Mississauga

Shambhala is a fresh expression of the spiritual journey for our time.  Our community includes people of all ages and walks of life who are looking for something – perhaps meditation instruction, a place to meditate regularly, talks and courses about developing awareness and compassion, a spiritual path, or a group of like-minded people to talk to.
