The Annapolis Shambhala Meditation Group, located in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, is part of an international community of meditation centres founded by and led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our centre offers weekly public meditation and a varied curriculum of teachings from Shambhala Buddhism and other contemplative traditions. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humour.
" Extending love and compassion toward others in contemplative practice is a rehearsal for stepping beyond stinginess and self-centeredness in daily life.
Eventually our training will give us the power to flip the mind instantly by letting go of the "me plan" and considering the happiness of somebody else, whatever we’re experiencing, wherever we are."
Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
There's More to Dying than Death
We will consider the practice of meditation as it relates to living our life with the knowledge that we do not know when death will come. We will study practical action steps related to dying such as, wills, living wills, end of life health directives, cmore info
We will look at the view, practice, and conduct of each step on the Buddhist path, with an emphasis on the experience of the practitioner. We will connect these traditional Buddhist teachings with the Shambhala vision and path.more info
