Established in 1971, the Shambhala Meditation Center of New York is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and further developed by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our center, located in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, offers daily public meditation, a core curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help New Yorkers of all traditions discover their inherent clarity, gentleness and humor.

The Shambhala Buddhist path, unique in the world of Western Buddhism, combines the teachings of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala principles of living a rich life, fully engaged with the world.

Programs and classes in Buddhist teachings, meditation and other contemplative disciplines are offered as well as individual meditation instruction.
