Mississauga Shambhala Centre 2018 On-Line Courses
The Mississauga Shambhala Centre offers on-line course periodically throughout the year. Check out their website for course offerings.

March to July 2018

Shastri Debbie McCubbin and Shastri Amadio will be teaching modified Shambhala Levels I to IV online via Zoom. This is an experiment, partly aimed at helping people who live far from centres access our curriculum, and get to ESA next fall if they wish to. It’s also a way for people to participate in our curriculum more fully without having to travel, even if they only take one or two courses.
