What Shambhala Is

We are a global community of meditators who believe that human beings are basically good.

Shambhala brings together people from all walks of life to learn to be kind to ourselves and others. We are committed to creating a society that brings out the best in each of us.

We recognize and believe that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness. This nature can be brought into daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community, and society, and from this, we can work together to create compassionate, sustainable, and just human societies. We call this “creating enlightened society.”
