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.
The Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shambhala is an extensive path of training in authentic meditation practices and wisdom teachings for anyone interested in pursuing such training. This program of courses and weekend retreats offers an experiential overview of practices, teachings, contemplative arts, and physical disciplines rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Vajrayana Buddhism.
The program is open to people of all religious backgrounds or no religious background. It is recommended for new and experienced meditators as well as those looking to enrich their personal spiritual path and social action. Shambhala weekends are structured to offer participants teachings and an in-depth meditation retreat. Attendance is required for the Friday night talk and for each session of the program.
