The Buddhist Meditation Society of Northern BC welcomes anyone interested in meditation to join us.
Known informally as the Open Door Sangha, our purpose is to open the door to Buddhist practice by providing a suitable space for regular formal practice, and by bringing people in touch with qualified teachers.
Buddhist practices are unfamiliar to most westerners. Even the simple act of sitting still can be very difficult initially, but those who stick with it find that deep benefits appear as practice matures.
We meet at the Greek Orthodox Church, 511 S Tabor Blvd., Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.
If you are interested in practicing with us please call or email one of our contact people. New participants should arrange for preliminary instruction prior to their first evening practice session.
The Vipassana group meets regularly on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7pm.
There is usually one Vipassana retreat each year. These retreats are led by teachers qualified through the Insight Meditation Society.
The Zen group meets regularly on Tuesday evenings from 6:15 to 8pm. This group practices in the Japanese Rinzai Zen tradition and is affiliated with the Zen Center of Vancouver.
