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.

FREE MEDITATION INSTRUCTION

Maybe you’ve read about Mindfulness in the news, or heard of the research
that proves its’ many benefits. 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, certified meditation guides will provide you with all the information
and structure you need to begin your meditation practice.

Open to the public

Every Wednesday 7 pm – 8 pm (doors open at 6:30pm)

Our regular group meditation sittings are
silent shamatha/vipassana (mindful/awareness) meditation,
for one-hour with a walking meditation halfway through.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Meditation cushions are provided.

Donations (large or small) are welcomed to help support
our non-profit,
all volunteer Meditation Centre.

TALKS

Offered every Sunday after Group Sitting Meditation

Sunday Group Sitting Meditation is followed by a tea break and a 45 min informal talk and discussion about meditation.The talks are lead by an experienced meditation teacher, and we share a topic, a book, or a current event to share how we can bring our mindful/awareness skills into our everyday lives. In this way we can learn to be more resourceful, resilient and calm in any situation.

COURSES and RETREATS

To support your ongoing meditation practice 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.
