Fort Collins Shambhala Meditation Center

About This Center

Shambhala Meditation Center of Fort Collins is part of a global community which aspires to awaken kindness, goodness and wisdom within society.

The Shambhala teachings are grounded in ancient wisdom and practical knowledge from many traditional cultures, especially teachings from ancient Tibet. These teachings begin with the understanding that all beings are basically good, and that life is worth living. We call this a path of spiritual warriorship, which here means living a life of fearlessness, gentleness, and intelligence. The Shambhala teachings emphasize being in the world, and bringing together everyday life, work, family, and social action with the path of meditation. The teachings focus on how to help this world. In essence, Shambhala is about living a full human life, right in the midst of challenges.

Shambhala Fort Collins is a community of individuals committed to practicing, studying and building the basis for a caring and compassionate society.  Our center in downtown Fort Collins offers open meditation sessions, individual meditation instruction (always free of charge), weeknight classes, and weekend retreats.  You are welcome to drop in and visit, practice meditation during our open sitting sessions, or check out our introductory programs.

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
