Welcome to the Boulder Shambhala Center

“According to the Buddhist tradition, we don’t ever get new wisdom, nor does any foreign element come into our state of mind at all. Rather, practice is a question of waking up and shedding our covers. We have those goodies in us already; we only have to uncover them.”  

     —Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Founder of the Shambhala Tradition
