Why Meditate?

Meditation enables you to unwind, relax, let go of worry and improve your overall sense of wellbeing. Through training in meditation it’s possible to gradually reduce and eliminate the negative states of mind that cause our unhappiness and replace them with positive, peaceful states.

About Us

The teachings given at our classes are grounded in the ancient wisdom of Buddha and have been practised by meditators for generations. Our teachings are presented in a format that is especially suited to the people of the modern world.

Find the Class for You

At the moment we offer classes only at our main Centre in Calgary; however, online classes are open to everyone in Alberta. If you would like to have in-person classes in your area or city, please contact us.

Student comments

"Meditation is hard! But what I love about the classes is that even long-time practitioners admit there are days when their minds cannot be stilled. There's a gentleness here that I appreciate. Just keep trying, they say. Don't beat yourself up when your mind is like a dog chasing cars. After almost two years, I can honestly say that I have improved. My mind is more peaceful, and I feel like I've become more compassionate. I'm grateful to the teachings and encouragement I receive here, and my attendance has increased with the Covid option of online classes. In short, I'm hooked".

"I truly enjoyed the class. I've meditated on my own and have followed Buddhism a bit and need to be engaged with both of them more and plan to do so moving forward. I look forward to attending further classes with Akshobya Kadampa Buddhist Centre"
