Welcome to Shambhala in the Pioneer Valley!
Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center, located in downtown Northampton, Massachusetts, is one of over 300 international centers directed by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Shambhala, founded by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, holds the view that human goodness is inherent, and can be cultivated and expressed through the practice of meditation, caring, community, and societal engagement. The Shambhala community is dedicated to exploring ways to support human dignity as the basis for societal transformation. The Center is open weekday evenings Monday – Thursday, and often sponsors Saturday, weekend, or special weeknight events. Please check the “Programs” link for details of upcoming events.
September is Membership Month at Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center
This is the month that we celebrate our members’ contributions to our center. Members contribute their practice and study, volunteer service, and financial support in order to create a wakeful, caring society at the center, at home and in the community. Their generosity allows our center to offer public sitting, programs and classes. If you would like to be a member, more information is available here: http://pioneervalley.shambhala.org/community/membership/
