Saturday Half Day Courses

Saturday Half Day Courses are special 3 hour meditation classes which we hold at Kadampa Meditation Centre Ottawa.  They are from 10am-1pm and include a 30 minute break with refreshments.  Courses are $25 (free for Silver and Gold members)

Generally, we schedule one or two of these a month.  Because these courses are longer than our regular weekly classes, we have an opportunity to explore important topics in greater depth, and have a relaxed period of time devoted to questions at the end. Each course highlights a different topic, such as how to overcome anger, or how to develop a basic meditation practice at home.  Everyone is welcome.

Here are the upcoming Saturday half day courses.  All Courses are with our Resident Teacher, Gen Thekchen unless noted. Click the link for more information.
