Ongoing Offerings

Our centre offers a rich array of weekly ongoing offerings free to the public. No prior meditation experience required to attend. Some programs offer meditation instruction upon request. All are welcome.

Open Public Sitting Hours

Café Shambhala, Saturday mornings 10 AM – Noon. Includes some meditation, a dharma reading, discussion and social time with coffee/tea and snacks. Free basic meditation instruction is available.

Tuesday Night Open Sit, 7-8:30 PM. Tuesday night sessions are informal and offer free basic meditation instruction.

Sunday Open Sit, 10 AM – Noon, is recommended for practitioners of all levels and includes recitation of the Shambhala morning chants. Participants are encouraged to stay for the entire two hours, but this is not a requirement. The second Sunday of the month will coincide with our Children & Families program; childcare will be available at that time. Meditation instruction is usually not available on Sundays.

Other recurring programs

On the second Sunday each month our Family and Children group meets at 10
AM. Activities vary; please contact an organizer for more details.
