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.

Learn to meditate – free instruction

Wednesdays 7 – 8 pm

Sundays 10 – 11 am

Perhaps you’ve decided you wanted to learn to meditate, or you’ve tried it on your own but have difficulties or questions. We offer free meditation instruction in an environment with other new people.  Our trained meditation guides will provide you with all the information and structure you need to begin your meditation practice. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Meditation cushions are provided. No experience necessary, no need to register ahead of time, just show up!

Open House public meditation sittings

(followed by tea & informal talks)

Wednesdays 7 – 8 pm

Sundays 10 – 11 am

Our regular group meditation sittings are silent, shamatha/vipassana one-hour long, with a walking meditation halfway through.  Meditation is followed by a tea break and a one-hour informal talk and discussion. Meditation cushions are provided.

Courses and Retreats

We also offer weekend, evening and on-line programs of various kinds. Through these programs we develop the possibility of meeting our everyday activities with awareness, peace, wisdom, compassion and a sense of humour.
