Our Community

Sangha–the spiritual community–is one of our refuges on the path to enlightenment.  Learn how you can get involved.

Community Events

Come along and cherish the Centre for a few hours on Saturday. Come for the whole time or just a few minutes. This community get-together is a wonderful opportunity to engage in cleaning, decorating, fixing, publicity and many other activities that help Dharma to flourish in Guelph and the surrounding areas. Avalokiteshvara Centre is wholly run by volunteers, so any help that you can give is much appreciated!

Please see the calendar for the Centre Cherishing time this month!

New Centre Space!

Thank you to everyone for your support over the summer. Our renovations are now (almost) complete with a beautiful floor, ceiling and a lovely shrine. We are so appreciative to the community to make this Centre space happen.

Would you like to help the Dharma flourish in Southwestern Ontario?  Consider volunteering your time at the Centre.  Since the Centre is established for the benefit of all, when you help out a Centre, you indirectly benefit all living beings.  There are many ways in which you can get involved:

  • Attend Centre Cherishing days (monthly)
  • Help distribute publicity
  • Offer your skills and artistry
  • Make prayers and dedications

Please contact Scott, our Admin Director if you would like to volunteer or just come along for Centre Cherishing! Check the calendar for Centre Cherishing times.
