“Meditation practice begins by sitting down and assuming your seat cross-legged on the ground.  You begin to feel that by simply being on the spot, your life can become workable and even wonderful.”  

– Chögyam Trungpa, Founder of the Shambhala Tradition


In Transition

Shambhala New York is currently in transition without a permanent center, but meditation programs and events are still being offered in all five boroughs. See the right hand panel for upcoming offerings and join our mailing list to receive our “In The Now” newsletter for current events and updates.

Visit our Resources page to learn about programs at our regional land centers (Sky Lake, Karme Choling, and Shambhala Mountain Center) and helpful information on book recommendations, cushions, and more.

If you’re a current member of Shambhala New York and wish to meet with an individual meditation instructor, please contact Dan Schriebman, Operations Manager.
