Phoenix Shambhala Meditation Center is moving to a new location!

We are on the move!

On June 19, 2015 Phoenix Shambhala Meditation Center will be moving to our new location in Scottsdale.  Sunday, June 21 will mark our first public sitting in the new space and coincides with the celebration of the summer solstice, Midsummer Day. In honor of both of these events, we will be hosting a celebration following the public sitting that day. Everyone is warmly invited!

A year and a half ago, on Shambhala Day, we announced our aspiration to move our Center to a larger, brighter and more welcoming location that is accessible to everyone. Since then the Phoenix Shambhala Center Council has worked on a strategic plan to bring that aspiration to fruition.

And on June 21, 2015 that aspiration will be realized. The new Center is at 7024 E. Osborn Rd, Suite A, Scottsdale, Arizona 85251. It is wheelchair accessible and will comfortably seat at least 50 participants.

With twice our current space, we will be able to:

  • invite prominent teachers to share their wisdom and offer their teachings to more participants;
  • host yoga, Chi Gong, and other movement and body practice trainings comfortably;
  • partner with like-minded organizations for events that further the dawning of an Enlightened Society filled with compassion and kindness;
  • And, we will not have to use the hallway for celebrating and eating any longer, so look for more celebrations!

Our sincere gratitude is extended to

  • Those of you who come with open hearts and curious minds to practice and learn – without you, we would not exist;
  • Our members who generously support the Center with monthly donations and gifts;
  • And our volunteers who give freely of their time and energy every week.

Of course, maintaining a larger space will require additional financial resources. The members of the Council have carefully considered the sustainability of this move and can assure you that the Phoenix Shambhala Center is on strong financial footing. That strength depends on the ongoing support of our members and those of you who participate regularly.

In addition to the costs of moving, we have just purchased 30 new cushion sets. Over the next months, we will need to purchase additional furniture and items such as a convection oven and portable dishwasher.
