Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

6 reviews
Why not combine our two most popular tours into one? See the sights of the historic port city of Halifax and then take in the famous breathtaking sights of Peggy's Cove.<br><br>Our tour would commence from Pier 21 with its Historic block as the "Ellis Island" of Canada, where more than one million immigrants came through and more than 500,000 left from during WWII.<br><br>From there we will visit St. Paul's Church, the oldest Anglican church in Canada. As well, St. Paul's Church was among some of the buildings that withstood the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917. We will drive on to Fort Needham Hill where a memorial carillon was built for the victims of that explosion. Then we'll be on to Canada's most famous lighthouse.<br><br>Peggy's Cove is one of the most unique, captivating and exhilarating eye-openers in Nova Scotia. The quaint seaside hamlets of Shad Bay, Big Lake, East Dover and West Dover, to mention but a few, are also breathtaking.

I recently attended the free meditation session held at the Shambhala Centre. It wasn't sure where to go when I arrived but a gentleman was very polite and pointed the way. I found it very relaxing and welcoming.

This is the global h.q. of one of the most important Buddhist organizations in the west. They offer meditation sittings as well as informal tours. Excellent stop! Highly recommend!

The Halifax Shambhala Centre is the headquarters for the Shambhala centres throughout the world. The main shrine room is a beautiful example of traditional buddhist shrines mixed with a modern western aesthetic. Free meditation is held daily, but you can also pop in just to see the space. Located near Dalhousie University and close to downtown. The Shambhala Buddhist tradition was established in North America by well-known author, master & Tibetan exile Chogyam Trungpa in the 1970's, and is continued today by his son, Sakyong Mipham.
