Meditation & Modern Buddhism in Halifax & the Calder Valley

Welcome to Ganden Kadampa Buddhist Centre where you can enjoy our meditation classes, courses and retreats, guided meditations and in-depth Buddhist study programmes. Our Centre has a wonderful and peaceful atmosphere where everyone is welcome!

Ganden Centre is part of The New Kadampa Tradition of Buddhism and has been running classes in Halifax since 1993.

The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union – is a worldwide union of Buddhist Centres that follow the tradition of Mahayana Buddhism derived from the Buddhist meditators Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa. The founder of The New Kadampa Tradition is Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. For more information on our tradition visit

We run meditation classes, lunchtime guided meditations, half-day courses, in-depth Buddhist study classes – so whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got something for you! Just follow the various links to find out times and places.

Many people are beginning to experience the benefits of meditation in their daily lives, learning how to make their mind more peaceful and positive and solve their problems of worry, anxiety, stress, and even ill-health. Learning to meditate is very simple and at our classes you get the opportunity to discuss and ask questions with experienced meditation teachers.

You don’t need to be Buddhist to benefit from meditating regularly – everyone can learn to meditate and begin to experience a calm, spacious mind and an increased ability to cope with the busyness of modern, daily life.

Give us a call, follow the links on the site, drop us an email or just call in to find more details. The Centre is open around classes, which run at various times from lunchtime to evenings – we would definitely love to hear from you!
