About Us

Northern California Shambhala, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. For your tax purposes, our ID number is 82-0990734.

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.

We are supported by the generosity of volunteers, donations and membership contributions. We are sincerely grateful for every offering we receive. Thank you so much for your generosity!

We can afford to open ourselves and join the rest of the world with a sense of tremendous generosity, tremendous goodness, and tremendous richness. The more we give, the more we gain – although what we gain should not particularly be our reason for giving. Rather, the more we give, the more we are inspired to give constantly. And the gaining process happens naturally, automatically.
