Ashe Mahamudra 150

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.

Join us for a free Shambhala Open House to meditate, connect with community, and develop mindful-awareness & compassion.

Winter is the natural time of year to gather in community, reflect on our lives, and set aspirations for the year to come. Whether you are a newcomer to meditation or a long-time practitioner, this retreat is the perfect opportunity to do just that.
