Come when you can and stay as long as you wish. There is no charge to come and meditate . Donations are always welcome, though, to help cover costs of operation. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of religious or spiritual tradition, or the lack thereof . There are normally many more people in attendance at the Centre for sitting than are listed on this Meetup group, and practice happens regardless of numbers who sign up here . When at the centre please do not hesitate to approach one of our members with questions you might have about the centre and its meditation offerings. The Ottawa Shambhala Centre has elevators and automatic door buttons on all entrances and washrooms; we use LED lights and have windows to let in natural light. We have a nut-free policy and do not burn incense inside the centre out of respect for those with allergies. We aim for a non-scent practice at the Centre and ask meditators not to wear perfumes or colognes. And we aim to be a welcoming and warm place to practice. If you have any questions regarding this invitation, please contact us. More information is also available at: http://ottawa.shambhala.org/monthly-calendar/ . We look forward to seeing you soon!
