Our Meditation Classes

We offer a variety of meditation classes throughout the week online and onsite in Guelph and we plan to start our branch classes in nearby areas in the Fall of 2022. Keep updated on our upcoming classes by subscribing to our monthly newsletter or following us on Facebook.

Suitable for everyone, these drop-in meditation classes offer simple, practical methods to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. Each class focuses on using Buddhist understanding to help us solve our daily problems, let go of negative minds and find the lasting happiness we seek.

Everyone is welcome at Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre.
