Community

Our community welcomes those new to meditation practice who are just discovering the teachings on basic goodness and enlightened society. We are a diverse gathering of practitioners, both newcomers and those who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years.

The Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center has been in the Pioneer Valley since the late 1970s. With over 60 members, the Center is experiencing steady growth as interest in Shambhala meditation and mindfulness has grown around the world. The Center is an all-volunteer organization and is supported by member dues, program fees, and donations. The Shambhala Council is a group of members who guide the operations and policies of the Center under the direction of the worldwide Shambhala organization. Feedback, suggestions, and ideas are welcome at any time, either through email to pvshambhala@gmail.com or by phone 413-585-9848.
