St. Margaret's Bay Shambhala Centre

About us

It is the Shambhala view that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society. The essential tool for doing this is meditation – the simple bravery of looking directly at one’s own mind and heart.

Shambhala vision is rooted in the contemplative teachings of Buddhism, yet it is a fresh expression of the spiritual journey for our time.  It is available to practitioners of any tradition.  It is the basis for creating an enlightened society.

St. Margarets Bay Shambhala Centre is part of the  global community of Shambhala Centres and Groups. Our community welcomes people from all walks of life, traditions and religions.

"The true benchmark of spiritual maturity is how often your words and actions are aligned with love." Matt Kahn

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
