I've just moved to Montreal, QC, and I'm looking for a group to practice Shamata. I saw a few places here but didn't find anything about this practice yet, maybe some of you could help me.
I met my teacher, Lama Padma Samten (who was named Lama by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche) in 1999, in Brazil and I've been his student since. During my last retreat there (Brazil) I met Alan Wallace (http://www.sbinstitute.com/alan
), who talked about the importance of Shamata and conducted a few practices.
I would like to go on with this practice but it's always easier to practice in a group
Edit: I speak French also (not perfect but enough)
