The Vancouver Shambhala Centre is a Buddhist meditation centre, offering a community grounded in a warm approach to the study and practice of meditation.
We provide instruction in mindfulness-awareness meditation for beginners and experienced practitioners, a diverse variety of evening and weekend programs as well as public group meditation sessions. We offer tools to help discover greater compassion, confidence, wisdom and joy in day-to-day life. The Shambhala teachings provide a way to extend personal transformation for the benefit of society as a whole.
The Vancouver Shambhala Centre has suspended all in-person events in accordance with BC"s provincial orders for faith-based organizations. Once these orders expire, we will re-open with limited in-person attendance, online-only, and hybrid in-person/online meditation sessions, programs and classes.
Please join us at our Wednesday Open House where you can receive free first-time meditation instruction, meditate with our community, and learn about buddhadharma. Join our Open House via Zoom, with limited in-person attendance & Zoom once restrictions ease.
Please check out our weekly public meditation schedule including our 5-6 pm daily online sitting meditation, our programs, classes and events page, and our monthly calendar.
The vision of Shambhala, a worldwide community of meditators, is based on the wisdom, sanity and compassion that comes from mindfulness-awareness meditationQuoted From: https://vancouver.shambhala.org/
