About our Centre

The Mississauga Shambhala Centre is a sharing community open to all ages, backgrounds, and cultures where we can bring meditation into our lives.  Our group serves as a place where we connect around areas of interest: bringing more peace and space into our daily lives, social action, Buddhist teachings, or just sharing experience and warmth with others.  Our Centre is also a source of support and encouragement for everyone exploring the richness and challenge of meditation practice.

The Shambhala Centre in Mississauga is part of an international community of over 220 Shambhala meditation centres and groups. We are located in southwest Mississauga in the Erin Mills Parkway and QEW area, close to Lake Ontario and the many parks in the area. For more information about the Shambhala tradition, history and current world-wide initiatives open the About Shambhala tab.

“Meditation is based on the premise that the natural state of mind is calm and clear…..Meditation is a way to slow down and see how our mind works. This has nothing to do with religion or a spiritual path. It has everything to do with simply being human.” Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
