Welcome to Meditation in Mississauga!

Latest News - AKBC has moved from Port Credit!

The Centre rented space from the owners of the Montessori school attached to the First United Church for almost 5 years. While we had enough space, that location was not ideal for a meditation center. We moved on June 22, 2014. We have yet to find a new venue in Mississauga. In the meantime our branch classes and events have resumed in Brampton and Glen Williams. We'd like to thank everyone for your support and understanding as we look for a more suitable venue from which we can continue to offer the Dharma in Mississauga. Please check this web site for updates.

Drop-in Classes in Glen Williams and Brampton continue and an upcoming workshop planned for Nov.

Drop-in meditation classes are continuing on Mondays in Brampton and Wednesdays in Glen Williams. Also in November on Saturday 22nd join us in beautiful Glen Williams for another workshop. The historic Town Hall at 1 Prince Street is a tranquil spot in a busy world, and it is well worth the drive to experience the energy and enthusiasm of sharing our understandings and deepening our experience. The topic will be " Recognizing and how to deal with our delusions". The last workshop in August was well attended and reportedly meaningful. There may not be "magic" in the Glen; however, people attending these workshops seem to bring something very special and we all benefit.  Details to follow.
