On-Line Meditation Classes

AVALOKITESHVARA KADAMPA BUDDHIST CENTRE IS TEMPORARILY PHYSICALLY CLOSED, BUT OUR MEDITATION CLASSES AND COMMUNITY ARE CONTINUING ONLINE

Due to the current worldwide outbreak we have closed the Centre to flatten the curve through social distancing. During this time, we are helping our community stay peaceful and anxiety-free by live-streaming our meditation classes directly to you. We are live-streaming our classes from our Centre in Guelph to towns and cities in Southwestern Ontario outside of the Golden Horseshoe. Join us for our online classes from the comfort of your home and learn meditation methods designed to help us transform all our difficulties into spiritual growth.

No prior experience, special equipment or special clothes are necessary – just come as you are.

  • Guided Breathing Meditation Every class begins with a fifteen -minute guided breathing meditation.

  • Second Guided Meditation The teaching is followed by a guided meditation based on the class teaching in order to develop wisdom through deeper contemplation and meditation.

  • Question and Answer There is an opportunity to discuss the talk and meditation with others, and to ask questions. Don’t worry – there’s no expectation to talk if you don’t want to!

  • Advice on Daily Practice The class finishes with practical advice on how we can put the teaching into practice in our daily life through the practice of mindfulness.
