Acharya Eric Spiegel discusses the importance of the environment we create when we’re off the meditation cushion – our overall sense of personal virtue – to the path of meditation. How can we be of benefit, even in the smallest way, to the people in our lives?

Since 1980 Acharya Eric Spiegel has been active in the growth and development of the Shambhala Meditation Center in New York. In addition to teaching the traditional syllabus of the Shambhala Community, Acharya Spiegel teaches on understanding the transitions of life and death, and on relating with the power and energy of wealth from a sane, empowered view point – and on the general lack of insight into this topic that pervades our culture. Eric has also been involved in the Stonewall Community Foundation, and the Queer Dharma and Diamond Metta groups.

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.
