Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

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. Learn to meditate and naturally grow your confidence, mindful awareness, and compassion.

Those of all spiritual traditions are invited to explore our offerings in the quest to find a mind of compassion, gentleness and sanity.  We offer programs for beginners in meditation as well as experienced practitioners.

Meditation is a personal journey and a path of social transformation. The Shambhala teachings offer a way to discover the wisdom, sanity and goodness within our seemingly complex and chaotic minds. Through meditation we discover the inherent goodness in society. As individuals and community we learn how to bring forth that goodness through the experience of bravery, gentleness and delight.
