The Halifax Shambhala Centre is part of a Shambhala, an international community of 214 meditation centres and groups founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The Shambhala Buddhist path, unique in the world of Western Buddhism, combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala principles of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.
Shambhala is dedicated to the view that a dignified life based on meditative understanding is accessible to everyone and can blossom into an enlightened society. Contemplative practices bring into our ordinary lives a natural sense of goodness, fearlessness, and humor.
Shambhala Meditation Centres welcome anyone interested in the practice of meditation and anyone who aspires to expand the experience of gentleness and nonaggression into all areas of life.
Open to all regardless of age, race, or religion, the Halifax Shambhala Centre is home to a vibrant, diverse community of members and friends who provide ongoing volunteer and financial support - creating a warm, genuine basis for the realizing the full potential of our authentic wisdom traditions.
