Meditation for Modern Life


Ganden Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Halifax offers meditation classes that are suitable for everyone who is looking to develop inner peace and ways to deal with the complexity of modern day life. We are based in Halifax but offer classes in the surrounding area.

Weekly Classes

Everyone, regardless of their level of experience or background, can benefit from the classes & courses offered on the General Programme.

Courses & Retreats

On these half-day or full-day courses we learn about specific practices and aspects of Kadampa Buddhism that help us to solve our daily problems of negative minds and find real, lasting happiness.

Chanted Prayers

Chanted Prayers (or pujas) are a powerful method to connect with the inspiring energy of the enlightened beings. This connection immediately makes our mind peaceful and uplifted, and gives a real boost to our spiritual practice.

Food for thought

End the week with a relaxing guided meditation followed by a delicious three course vegetarian meal in the company of friends.

Habits of Happy People

Habits of Happy People What do we really need to be happy? Money, success, status and popularity are no guarantee of happiness, and chasing them is a recipe for disappointment. But, by cultivating simple inner habits of acceptance, contentment, appreciation and joy we can find true happiness in any situation.…

Kids' Club

Come along to our new monthly kids club at Ganden Buddhist Centre, Halifax! Buddhist teachers Johnny Powell and Alison Jones will teach the kids 4 or 5 fun and simple mini-meditations that they can easily recall themselves to help them deal with difficult situations better, and help them understand how and why happiness comes from within. The mini-meditations will be held in our beautiful and calm meditation room, followed by some arts and crafts upstairs in the cafe area. Sessions will be light-hearted and a good place for adults to meet like-minded parents. All children must be accompanied by a parent or carer, and some healthy snacks will be provided.
