As a community, we seek to be diverse, caring, and to have an impact on our larger society and world. We welcome all people of all races, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations, genders, and abilities. We aspire to create spaces that are brave and safe enough for all to participate in them.

Our members and friends include dedicated senior teachers who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years, and enthusiastic newcomers who are just discovering our teachings on realizing basic goodness and building enlightened society.

Children and families are welcome to come for meditation instruction or discussion on Wednesdays at 7:00 or 7:45pm or on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. for meditation instruction and/or at 11:30 a.m. for our dharma talk. At this time, we are not providing childcare in a formal fashion. We recommend that you bring a quiet project for you child to work on during the instruction or talk. They can sit on a cushion near you or at the back of the meditation room. For more information, or if you would like to help start a family and children’s program, please contact us at <>.
