Learn to Meditate

Our building is closed, but our community is open and ready to meet you where you are. We offer free instruction live online and many introductory programs.

Core Curriculum

The Way of Shambhala is an extensive path of training in authentic meditation practices and wisdom teachings. Contemplative Arts comprise a number of secular disciplines and activities, including flower arranging and photography.

Due to the coronavirus, all our buildings are closed and all events are online. We are monitoring reports from health professionals to determine when it will be safe for us to resume in-person events.

In the meantime, we are continuing to offer a rich diversity of practice and educational programming online.
