Genuineness
is truly feeling oneself as a human being.

Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.

We offer free meditation instruction and sitting practice, as well as a wide variety of classes and retreats in meditation, Shambhala Buddhist teachings, and other contemplative disciplines. Sitting practice is open and available on Tuesday – Thursday and Sunday mornings.  Check the calender for  specific days/times as well as schedule changes.

Shambhala Meditation is based on the premise that the natural state of the mind is calm and clear. It’s a practice that anyone can do. Both cushions and chairs are provided.  Learn to meditate and develop mindfulness awareness by attending one of our many Introductory Programs or Ongoing Offerings.
