What We Offer

At the heart of the Shambhala tradition is the view that a brilliant life is accessible to everyone. Contemplative practices bring a natural sense of goodness, fearlessness, and humour into our ordinary lives.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Meditation is the process of rediscovering the natural state of the human mind – relaxed, vivid, open and joyful. It is rooted in the simple premise that we all have the ability to cultivate the mind’s inherent stability, clarity and strength in order to be more awake, and to develop the compassion and insight necessary to care for oneself and the world genuinely.

Shambhala vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society. We offer a community of supportive mediation practitioners and teachers and instructors who are fully versed in the techniques of meditation and the obstacles to effective practice. For those who wish to engage further, we offer a comprehensive and profound path, rooted in the ancient wisdom of Buddhism while also offering fresh and new insights particularly helpful to modern living.
