About Northern California Shambhala, Inc.

About Northern California ShambhalaAs part of the international Shambhala mandala, the Northern California Shambhala community seeks to enhance the lives of all beings and to decrease suffering in the world. We are an interdependent regional community made up of members and friends of Shambhala meditation centers and their surrounding communities.

Northern California Shambhala Inc is a regional organization of Shambhala International, a community of meditation centers founded in 1973 by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

We are dedicated to creating enlightened society using the tools of mindfulness, awareness, and unconditioned confidence. These inherent qualities are cultivated through meditation practice, by studying the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, and by taking part in the Shambhala community. We then apply what we have learned to our everyday lives at work, at home, with our families, and in society as a whole.
