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.

Dear Members and Friends, 

We hope you are well and in good health.

Due to the continuing risks associated with the coronavirus in our region, in-person gatherings for Sunday group meditation practice are suspended until further notice.  If you are interested in joining us for Sunday group meditation online via Zoom, please email [email protected] to obtain the link and schedule a time for orientation. Also, check out the weekly offerings from Shambhala Online on the right side of this page.

We recognize that what we offer is valuable in times like these. However, we feel that suspending our in person group sits is a kind and gentle act that is offered for the health and safety of our members,  friends, and community. Until we are able to gather, we invite you to practice at home or online. As we practice, may we extend compassion toward all who are affected by the pandemic and the injustices in our world. Stay well!

Warm regards,

St Louis Shambhala Governing Council
