Woman meditating classesClasses on modern Buddhism and meditation are offered in Guelph and throughout Southwestern Ontario. Currently Avalokiteshvara KBC holds classes in Kitchener – Waterloo, Stratford, and London. Our General Program classes are all “drop-in”. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of background or experience. Because the classes are drop-in, no registration is required.

AKBC also offers the Foundation Program in Guelph. The Foundation Program is an in-depth study course that takes a more in-depth look at Buddhist theory and practice. Through systematic study on the Foundation Program, we can train in bringing the wisdom of  Buddha’s teachings into our daily life activities. Although this is not a drop-in class, everyone is welcome to attend in order to try it out. To arrange to sit in on the Foundation Program, please contact us at

We also regularly hold retreats, weekend courses and daily prayers at the Centre. For a detailed look at our schedule, please view our calendar.

Please check each page below for more information on dates, times, topics, and venues of our drop-in classes.
