Welcome to Dartmouth!

Welcome to the Dartmouth Shambhala Meditation Group, a friendly community that welcomes both beginner and experienced meditators alike to join us for meditation and learning.

Our programs and talks offer options for both new and experienced practitioners. We continue to focus on providing rich teachings and an uplifting environment for meditation in support of making Enlightened Society possible.

Dartmouth Shambhala is embarking on a new path. On December 17, 2018, we will host our last Open House at the MacPhee Centre. We will then break until the New Year.

As of Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, we will change our format. Our intention is to become a self-directed practice group focused on sharing with each other and supporting each other in our meditation practice. The main difference is that we will no longer routinely invite teachers; rather, we will rely on one another to bring forward discussion topics and help facilitate meaningful conversation related to meditation practice.

The group will meet weekly on Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m. at Alderney Gate Library. All are welcome and meditation instruction will be provided to newcomers. Please contact us at Dartmouth.shambhala@gmail.com beforehand to let us know you’ll be joining us. We will have chairs and some meditation cushions available
