What we're about

Shambhala Vision: It is the Shambhala view that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be cultivated through meditation, following ancient principles, and it can be further developed in daily life, so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society. Palm Beach Shambhala offers regular meditation programs, classes and retreats. Meditation instruction is available free-of-charge.

Heart of Recovery

Palm Beach Shambhala

Heart of Recovery Mondays 7:00 - 8:30 pm Heart of Recovery is open to anyone who is interested in exploring how the path of meditation and the path of recovery intersect. From a contemplative perspective, working with addiction is not about impulsively grabbing for something to stop the desire; it’s more about resting with the raw, naked quality of the urge. As human beings we are born with an inherent ability to be present for our experience. This innate quality can also become the basis for our healing. Being present for our experience brings us to the heart of recovery. Our Heart of Recovery Open House is open to brand new as well as experienced meditation practitioners as well as individuals working with recovery from their own addiction to substances and behaviors as well as individuals whose lives have been impacted by addiction. No meditation experience is necessary. Brief meditation instruction will be given at the start of each meeting.
