Notes and Events:
The Saint John Shambhala Meditation Group is a local group of meditation practioners inspired by the Shambhala Buddhist teachings of basic goodness and enlightened society. We are affliated with Shambhala International whose spiritual head is the Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
Our community of meditation practioners meets Wednesday evenings at 7:00-9:00 to strengthen our individual practice and learn more about meditation. We meet in "The Sitting Room" at 42 Wentworth St. near King St. E. We meditate together for an hour, followed by tea and discussion or contemplation based on selected readings.
Instruction is provided for newcomers in "shamatha" meditation, or the practice of "peaceful abiding". Meditation is a natural state of the human mind - at rest, open, alert. The basic meditation technique predates all religious traditions, though it is used in one way or another by each of them. Undertaken as a steady practice, meditation allows the mind to relax and settle. It encourages our inherent qualities of stability, clarity and mental strength to emerge.
Occasionally we host weekend meditation programs directed by senior teachers. These activities are usually coordinated with other Shambhala centers in the Maritime region with whom we share resources and maintain contact. Please check our website to see if there are any upcoming programs in the near future.
