Welcome to Kadampa Meditation Centre Winnipeg. The Centre was founded in 2016 by the renowned Buddhist meditation master and author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. It is one of about 1200 Centres and groups worldwide in 40 countries, that make up the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union.
At Kadampa Meditation Centre Winnipeg our aim is to provide an open, friendly and calm space in the city of Winnipeg where anyone can find greater inner peace, happiness and well-being. We offer meditation classes and events that are suitable for everyone. We hope you will find something interesting and useful for you here – whether you are a total beginner or have some experience of meditation, and whatever your beliefs you have.
The teachings and meditation techniques we teach can be traced back over 2,500 years in an unbroken lineage to Buddha Shakyamuni. However, they are presented in a way so they can be practiced in contemporary Canadian life. We call this Modern Buddhism and believe anyone will find it useful to learn.
However, the only way to find out whether this is something for you is to come to a class or event and experience meditation for yourself! You are very welcome to drop in to one of our weekly classes or book for a Saturday workshop. We hope to see you soon!
