Meditation is a practice anyone can do. It is based on the idea that the natural state of the mind is clear, open, and aware. Practicing meditation provides a way to experience this natural state more often, even in the midst of busy and challenging lives. Meditation helps us to synchronize our body and mind in the present moment, and allows the inherent qualities of stability, clarity, and mental strength to emerge.


In Shambhala, we begin by training in mindfulness-awareness meditation. Based on that foundation, the Shambhala tradition offers a pathway to connect to our innate dignity, kindness, and wisdom.


We welcome anyone new to meditation to check out our introductory programs on the Learn to Meditate page here.
