Shambhala Sadhana

About us

Please join us for a Full Moon Shambhala Sadhana community event. We'll be contemplating basic goodness - our own, in others, and in society - and sending that energy out into the world. In this time of confusion and distrust, this seems essential.

The Kongma Sakyong has requested that all Shambhala centres and groups host a monthly Shambhala Sadhana practice and celebratory meal for all Shambhala community members. This is an opportunity for us to meet, practice together, and talk about basic goodness and wholesome society. The intention is to foster experiences of basic goodness personally and societally, and to further bind us as a wholesome community.

The program is restricted to Philadelphia Shambhala Center members, but no other restrictions apply. 

The Shambhala Sadhana is a powerful practice that deepens our understanding, feeling, and appreciation of the profound and pervasive qualities of basic goodness in ourselves, others, and in society. The view of the sadhana, as the Sakyong has said, is that it is a binding practice for the community. He wrote the practice while on retreat in Nepal in 2011, and it has become a core practice in the community.

Here is more information about center membership:

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
