Shambhala Community Meditation Group

Who We Are

Shambhala is a global community of people inspired by the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature, our innate wisdom, can be developed so that it benefits our own lives and helps meet the many challenges facing the world. Shambhala vision tells us that we can experience a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world, which is the innate wakefulness of human beings.

We offer a path of medistation practice and contemplative arts in order to cultivate kindness, bravery, and genuine dialogue. Our vision is to inspire compassionate, sustainable, and just human societies.

What we do

Meditation is a natural state of the human mind—at rest, open, alert. Undertaken as a steady practice, meditation allows the mind to relax and settle. It encourages our inherent qualities of stability, clarity and mental strength to emerge.
