    Room: Main Shrine Room

    This Retreat Day is generously offered by the Halifax Shambhala Centre as a free day of group Shambhala Meditation, as it has been over the past two years.  

    Schedule Details: Arrival is generally at 8:30 for 9:00 start.  Functional silence is practiced for the whole period from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm so that each person can have their own individual retreat day with the support of the group practice environment.  From about 5:00 until 5:30 there is a social time.  The lunch period is from 12:00 noon until 1:30 pm and gives us time to eat, go for individual outdoor walks, have a nap, and/or study a bit, while still observing functional silence.  Location may change due to other programs, check the board when you arrive.

    *When you register please indicate who and/or where you received authorization to practice Shambhala Meditation (not to be confused with our more common technique of Shamatha meditation as taught at Open House and Way of Shambhala).*

    If you are interested in learning the Shambhala Meditation technique, it will be offered as part of the Basic Goodness 1 class in Halifax, open to all https://halifax.shambhala.org/program-details/?id=404089 and also in the Shambhala Meditation Weekthun at Dorje Denma Ling https://dorjedenmaling.org/programs-listing/685/shambhala-meditation-weekthun-2019/  You will be able to attend future retreat days after learning the technique.
