About This Center
For more than 35 years, the Edmonton Shambhala Centre has offered Edmontonians the opportunity to work with their minds and hearts through meditation. Our mission is to inspire an awake and compassionate society through personal and collective transformation.
We offer regular public meditation and meditation instruction, meditation courses and retreats, and a wide range of teachings from the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Our public meditation is free (donations welcome), and our courses and retreats have a generosity policy.
Our community is diverse, capable, and heartfelt. Our members and friends include dedicated senior teachers who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years, and enthusiastic newcomers who are just discovering our teachings on realizing basic goodness and building enlightened society.
