About our Centre

Located in southwest Mississauga in the Erin Mills Parkway and QEW area, we are close to the shore of Lake Ontario and many parks in the area.

Our Mississauga Shambhala community has all ages, backgrounds, and cultures and we all bring meditation into our lives in different ways.  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 meditation Centres and Groups. For more information about the Shambhala tradition, history and current world-wide initiatives open the Shambhala International 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
