WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
The Centre will be closed for a summer break from July 1 – 11.
For as long as the Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre remains closed, classes will be offered by live-stream for people in Barrie and the surrounding areas. Registrants will receive a link allowing them to watch and listen by phone, tablet or computer.
Sundays, 10:00 – 11:00 am
Gen Kelsang Suma will teach and guide us in a series of meditations that can be practiced by anyone. These meditations can help us improve our inner peace and mental clarity, and deepen our love and compassion for others.
We will conclude with special prayers. Prayers are neither small nor passive actions, but a healing force in our shared world.
Wednesdays, 10:00 – 11:00 am
Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Many people are interested in mindfulness and meditation, but what exactly is mindfulness? How do we do it, and how does it help us in our daily life?
Mindfulness training and meditation have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for centuries to be key to a happy and fulfilling life. They are skills cultivated not merely in the formal setting, but as a regular part of a practitioner’s everyday life.
The practice of mindfulness is about more than just “being in the moment”. Originally taught by Buddha, it is a training that prompts us to always remember – and thus constantly practice – beneficial ways of thinking and acting that will protect us from problems, and bring ever more happiness into our lives.
