Getting Started

Welcome to the Boulder Shambhala Center!

We look forward to getting to know you! Please feel welcome to stop by the center for a visit. The Boulder Shambhala Center is part of Shambhala, an international community of meditation centers and groups. We offer extensive training in meditation through introductory classes, curriculum-based programs and individual meditation instruction.

Meditation helps us synchronize body and mind in order to be present, awake, and complete. We can then apply the sanity, clarity, and presence developed in meditation to our everyday lives. Relating to life in this way creates dignified human culture, including kindness, love, and compassion. We welcome all people interested in the practice of meditation and anyone who aspires to expand the experience of gentleness and nonaggression into all areas of life.
