Notes and Events:

At this time, our Community is a practice group with no affiliated teachers; we draw teachings in through readings and audio recordings, and encourage members to attend retreats and dharma talks at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and various other places where teachings are being offered by recognized teachers of the dharma.

At our weekly Tuesday evening sitting meditation practice, both experienced meditators and persons new to meditation are warmly welcome.  We practice sitting meditation for 30 minutes. Depending on the week, we either read aloud for 20 - 25 minutes, or (on the second and fourth weeks), we listen to a recording of a dharma talk (roughly one hour long).   The readings and the recorded dharma talks are by various dharma teachers from the Insight and Theravada traditions, such as Joseph Goldstein, Larry Rosenberg, Ajahn Sumedho, and Sharon Salzberg.  We leave a few minutes after the reading/talk for brief discussion. 

For anyone not familiar with Insight Meditation (Vipassana meditation), optional brief instruction is provided at 7:10 PM before the Tuesday evening sitting. 

On the third Tuesday of each month, an addition 30 minute sitting period follows the dharma reading; participants are welcome to stay for this or leave quietly before it begins.

Please make an effort to arrive on time.  If you do arrive late, please enter quietly, find a seat (a cushion or chair), and join us in practice.

For those who have some meditation experience, possibly including some experience with intensive silent retreats, we also have First Sunday Extended Practice, a monthly half- day of silent sitting and walking meditation.  Please see the event pages for more information.

We look forward, in the future, to welcoming experienced teachers of the dharma to come and offer dharma talks.

Notes and Events:

The Iqaluit Soto Zen Group offers meditation instruction and practice in the Buddhist tradition of Soto Zen, open to all individuals regardless of faith, background and level of experience. Its principal method, zazen meditation, is a philosophical yet practical approach: through it, we confront the problem of suffering by opening ourselves to the present, by learning from the truth of compassion, and by developping inner discipline. Zen does not require beliefs. It encourages the development of understanding, of right action, and of human emotion.

We offer an informal "drop-in" program every Wednesday evening, 7PM to 8PM; and a regular Sunday practice program (1st Sunday = Beginner Session, 2nd Sunday = Zazen and Dharma Service Session, 3rd Sunday = Full Zazen Session, 4th Sunday = Zazen and Dharma Discussion Session). All offered sessions are open to all faiths and levels of expérience.

Kadampa Center for the Practice of Tibetan Buddhism was officially founded in 1991 by Don Brown to provide a place for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism following the lineage of Lama Yeshe and our current Spiritual Director Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche. The word "kadampa" refers to those who are able to see the Buddha's teachings as personal advice that applies immediately to their own lives.

We are a spiritual community committed to transforming the minds and lives of individuals and societies into the highest ideals of enlightened wisdom, compassion, and skilful action through the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in the Gelugpa tradition. We are part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international family of city and retreat centers, monasteries, publishing houses, hospices, and healing centers who share our purpose.

Under the guidance of our resident teacher, Geshe Gelek Chodha("Geshe-la"), we offer a full range of programs that cover all aspects of the Buddhist path. Kadampa Center is part of the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, famous for its emphasis upon deep understanding of Buddhist texts coupled with meditation practice. We host teachings by eminent Buddhist masters, offer courses for beginning and advanced students, and provide space for individual and group meditation. Here you will find the authentic teachings of the Buddha and a community supporting spiritual growth and practice.

All events at Kadampa Center are offered free of charge. Kadampa Center exists only through voluntary financial donations, as well as gifts of time, talent and energy.
