The Comox Valley has a well-kept secret in the Sherab Chamma Tibetan Bön Buddhist Centre, located at 407A 5th St. at England, right in the heart of Courtenay.
The centre has been in the Valley for 20 years and is headed by the only Tibetan Bön monk in Canada, Geshe Yongdong Losar. The centre hosts meditation practice, weekly teachings, Ngondro practices and special sangha social events on a regular basis. If you’ve been curious about meditation, mindfulness and Buddhism practices, the centre is now offering free online attendance at its weekly gatherings.
Sherab Chamma Ling holds regular Tuesday night teachings on meditation and mindfulness. For the foreseeable future, the centre has opened up these evenings through zoom.us to anyone who would like to join. This is an opportunity to spend some time with the GesheLa as he helps navigate uncertainty, fear, anxiety and helplessness. Please join in every Tuesday from 6:45-8:30 p.m. for guided meditation, teaching and chanting.
In addition to teaching at Sherab Chamma Ling, GesheLa travels on a regular basis to teach other groups of students at different locations on Vancouver Island and the mainland. Sherab Chamma Ling has hosted several visiting monks from other centres and from the Tibetan Bön monastery Menri, in Dolanji India.
Those wishing to come and check out the centre can use the Zoom code 471 432 408 with no cost associated. If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
