About This Center
Learn to meditate and naturally grow your confidence, mindful awareness, and compassion.
The Ottawa Shambhala Meditation Centre offers meditation instruction, regular practice sessions, and a variety of classes and weekend retreats for new and experienced practitioners. Our community welcomes people from all walks of life, traditions and religions.
The Shambhala teachings point to innate goodness as the nature of all individuals and society. Developing confidence in basic goodness through meditation supports us in cultivating gentleness and bravery in daily life and in service to others.
