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.

Weekly Meditation Gatherings

Every Sunday, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Please join us for sitting and walking meditation in the Shambhala tradition.  All are welcome, those new and those familiar to practice. If a sitting must be cancelled we will announce it on the web-page.

We are currently reading and discussing Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior as part of our Sunday gathering.
