Closure of the Centre

To all our dear members, renters, friends and groups: following the CDC edict and Dr. Bonnie Henry’s announcement on November 17th, 2020, the Victoria Shambhala Centre has been closed and will remain closed until we are given the ‘all clear’ sign from the CDC. In the meantime, we are offering many activities on-line. Please check the Monthly Calendar and Featured Programs at the bottom of this page and join us online.

We hope that everyone will stay safe and sound. These are challenging times and yet we can support one another by way of our commitment to community and to one another.
