Everyone is welcome!

If you are interested in meditation but do not have a practice please come by 9:00 am and we can provide instruction to get you started.

Morning ServiceOct 22, 2017 10:00 am

All of our services are open to everyone and no prior knowledge or experience with Buddhism is necessary.

The services are conducted in English with the exception of some chanting.

Service books are provided so that everyone can participate in these traditional, centuries old chants.

Dharma Time for KidsOct 22, 2017 10:00 am

Everyone joins the first part of the service and then they will proceed to the upstairs classroom/ boardroom.

The goal for this season is to host an activity for the kids every Sunday. Lessons will be approximately every-other week, and informal playtime/social time for the kids with games and puzzles will be on the other Sundays.

 

*We are looking for volunteers to help with Dharma Time – both for short lessons (25 minutes) and for play/social time supervision. Please contact e.nagata@shaw.ca or at 403.651.4501 if you are able to help.

CircleOct 24, 2017 7:00 pm

The Temple Refuge Circle deepens our Practice, not for spiritual enlightenment, as that is already assured through the Vow of Amida Buddha, through our inter-being with All That Is, but to deepen our Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, Equanimity, Loving-kindness, Deep Listening, and Gratitude in our lives.

 

We practice as equals, in the form of a Circle, joining for a committed Season to grow and share together.

A gentle group, meant to be Accepting and Safe.
