Eight Very Good Reasons to Join the Kadampa Meditation Centre Ottawa Community

  1. When you become a member of KMC Ottawa, you're actively supporting the flourishing of Dharma in the Ottawa/Gatineau region and throughout the world. 
  2. Not only are you helping Dharma flourish in the world, you're also committing to your own spiritual growth - making a statement in your own life about the prominent role you want to give to Buddha's teachings in your life.
  3. Becoming a supporting member of KMC Ottawa is the most economical way to enjoy all our classes (in person or online), retreats, day courses and branch classes at significant savings compared to pay-as-you-go payments. 
  4. Throughout the year, there are special events that take place at KMC Ottawa for which silver, gold and platinum supporting members are entitled to discounts in the admission price.
  5. As well as all the free classes and discounted admissions you'll be receiving, you'll also have access to the Live Streamed class links, (upon request), so you have the option to participate from home. Current Live Stream classes are on Tuesday evenings, (available with all membership types), & Saturday 1/2 Day Classes, (available with Silver, Gold & Platinum memberships). 
  6. While the Center largely relies on supporters’ membership fees to provide classes throughout the year, a significant portion of our profit is donated to the International Temples Project. That means your money starts off at KMC Ottawa but can have a global impact.
  7. Your gold and platinum support membership fees also give you access to our study programs. If you choose to commit to a study program, either the Foundation Program or the Teacher Training Program, this cost is included in your membership. It's the most profound and at the same time, most affordable education you'll ever receive!
  8. And, last of all, but certainly not least of all, when you become a member of KMC Ottawa you simultaneously become part of our extended spiritual family. This all happens in the same moment! You really can't be a member of KMC Ottawa and also a stranger to us. Welcome to our community!

If we cherish others we will be concerned to help rather than harm them, so we will naturally avoid non-virtuous actions.
