Wednesday Open House--online only - 7pm

November 11th—June 9th

Date details +
    Room: Online using Zoom

    All are welcome.

    Open House, hosted every Wednesday night at the Vancouver Shambhala Centre, is an excellent and reliable way to enter into the practice of mindfulness/awareness meditation and build a regular meditation practice. The evening takes first time meditators through guided instruction which flows into a relevant talk about meditation practice. Experienced meditators are welcome to come and practice meditation together as well. Many people in our community make Open House a regular part of their lives.

    If you would like first-time meditation instruction, please arrive by 6:55pm to introduce yourself.

    The evening begins at 7:00 pm with brief meditation instruction, then sitting and walking meditation until 8:00 pm, using using Zoom. (You are welcome to arrive late or leave early for this meditation period.)

    At 7:30 pm, anyone who would like first-time meditation instruction will move to a Zoom breakout room with an experienced meditation instructor for detailed meditation instructions, with time for questions and discussion. Many people find it helpful to repeat this meditation instruction session.

    At 8 pm everyone joins back in the Main Meditation Hall for announcements of upcoming events.  Then, please get yourself a cup and tea and join us on Zoom for casual conversation.

    At 8:15 there is a dharma talk and discussion. The evening concludes about 9 pm.
