Wednesday Open House-in person & online - 7pm

June 16th—December 29th

Date details +
    Room: Main Meditation Hall

    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.

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

    If you would like first-time meditation instruction, please arrive at 6:55 pm to introduce yourself. In-person meditation instruction and discussion occurs in the secondary meditation hall. Many people find it helpful to repeat this meditation instruction session.

    At 8 pm, there are announcements, then a social period. Please get a cup of tea and join us for casual conversation.

    At 8:20 there is a dharma talk and discussion. The evening concludes about 9 pm.

    There is no fee for open house, though donations are appreciated.

    Everything you need is provided; just come as you are.
