About This Center
For over 40 years, the Shambhala Meditation Center has offered New Yorkers the opportunity to work with their minds and hearts through meditation. Our mission is to inspire an awake and compassionate society through personal and collective transformation.
We offer meditation classes, mindfulness workshops, urban retreats, and a wide range of teachings from the Shambhala tradition.
In addition, we offer Shambhala Training, a comprehensive curriculum of meditation and emotional intelligence education, rooted in ancient wisdom and designed for the challenges of modern, everyday existence. This secular path of study and practice is suitable for all levels of experience and open to people of all faiths.
“In meditation, we are constantly discovering who and what we are.” – Chögyam Trungpa, Founder of the Shambhala Tradition
