Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

Shambhala is a global community. There are more than 170 centers and groups around the world, as well as thousands of individual members. Shambhala Meditation Centers offer courses in meditation and other contemplative arts and disciplines, and also host community gatherings, celebrations, and family events. In community life, we endeavor to put into practice the principles of courage and compassion. This helps us to experience daily life as a constant opportunity for spiritual practice and social service.
