Meditation in London

The London Shambhala CenMeditation at the London Centretre has been teaching mindfulness meditation in London for over thirty years, in addition to a complete range of Buddhist courses and retreats. Our vision is to contribute towards the creation of a more compassionate, sustainable, and just society. We welcome people from all walks of life, faiths, and backgrounds. We provide the space to come together to practise meditation, connect with each other, and celebrate together in order to create a culture of dignity and sanity in an increasingly chaotic and stressful world.

Whether you simply want support and training in developing an effective mindfulness meditation practice, or are interested in pursuing an authentic and transformative spiritual path, our team of highly experienced teachers and instructors are here to help.

About Shambhala

Shambhala is a global community led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Shambhala Buddhism presents the wisdom traditions of Buddhism and Tibet in a lively and accessible way. It provides the tools to discover our basic human goodness, confidence and wisdom. We present the Shambhala Path of Warriorship – a progressive series of courses and retreats that take us from basic mindfulness meditation to the transformative power of the practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. You are welcome to choose your own level of involvement in this path – there is no requirement that you become a Buddhist to engage in it.

The Shambhala Meditation Centre has been teaching mindfulness meditation in London to all – free from dogma or religious beliefs – for over thirty years. All of our teachers and instructors have many years experience of practice, and have completed intensive training retreats in how to teach meditation to others. They have also completed lengthy meditation retreats and intensive training in mindfulness as well as related Buddhist Practices.
