The Centre for Compassion & Wisdom Oakville/Burlington

Our Oakville/Burlington Group now meets at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Burlington

Anyone is most welcome to participate in any activities of this group, begun originally in Oakville when they were led by Dekyi Lee Oldershaw, former nun and founder of Lamp on the Path. The Centre for Compassion & Wisdom now holds meditation courses, events at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 3455 Lakeshore Road, Burlington, ON (west of Walker’s Line).
