Welcome. In the 21st century we have an ocean of resources. We’re not lacking information, knowledge, or wisdom. What we need is a mind that is capable of processing it all.

Sundays at Nalandabodhi Halifax

Nalandabodhi Halifax offers a variety practices to work with the naturally wakeful and compassionate energy of our minds – every Sunday morning.

Open Meditation

“To-let-go-of-something-you-first-have-to-be-close-enough-to-get-ahold-of-it.”Shamatha meditation is also known as peaceful abiding meditation. Sitting relaxed, we follow our breath and watch our minds activity without judgment. This is a practice to both stabilize our wildly moving thoughts, to become familiar with them and ultimately to make friends with our mind.

Tara Practice

taraAs we become familiar with our minds we develop a trust in its natural openness and warmth. In Tara practice we connect further with our potential for compassion by visualizing the energy of the Tara principle and opening our hearts to its creative wisdom. Tara practice takes place the first Sunday of each month.
