Take the opportunity to deepen inner peace and spiritual growth.

The special events offered by Akshobya are designed to help the busy person bring greater meaning and happiness into day to day living. Events at the Centre include:

  • Day and Half-Day Courses
  • Retreats
  • Blessing Empowerment Ceremonies


Retreats are offered both at our Centre in Calgary and in quiet locations just outside the city limits. Take time off from your busy life to deepen your inner peace. Enjoy teaching, guided meditations, opportunity for meaningful discussion as well as periods of silence. Open to all levels of experience.

Day and Half-Day Courses

These courses highlight different aspects of Buddhist teachings to help develop stronger understanding and bring happiness into our lives. Meditate, listen to teachings, participate in group discussions, and join in question-and-answer sessions.


Empowerments are special blessing ceremonies that give us the positive energy needed to progress on the Spiritual Path. Receiving Empowerment introduces us to special deep meditation practices. We develop a close connection to enlightened beings and learn to be in their continuous presence, blessing and inspiring our lives.

Empowerment is always accompanied by a commentary and special tantric meditations and sometimes by a short retreat focused on learning that practice.
