New to Shambhala?

You are welcome to attend one or all of our programs for new meditators: Open House, introductory classes, and weekend retreats. Check our Calendar and Programs page for details. You don’t need any prior knowledge of Buddhism or meditation ability to attend. Why meditate? Through meditation, you can begin to discover your mind’s natural stability and strength, and develop mindfulness. When you tap into this stability, your experience of life may become more vivid and clear. You may find you are less reactive and able to respond to situations without falling into negative patterns. Sitting quietly and working with your mind regularly is one of the most radical and practical ways you can spend your time. We welcome you to discover the benefits of a contemplative life for yourself, in the company of others on the path. More>>
