What we're about
Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
Today, the global Shambhala network brings together people of all ages and from all walks of life who are interested in exploring our own minds, transforming our experience, and awakening our potential for enlightened society. Shambhala is based on trust in human dignity.
We offer a path of meditation practice and contemplative arts oriented towards modern life. Our communities around the world cultivate kindness, bravery, and genuine dialogue. Our vision is to inspire compassionate, sustainable, and just human societies. We offer group meditation and instruction grounded in the principles of the Shambhala teachings that emphasize cultivation of courage and compassion.
There are two groups in Western New York working together to offer evening meditation sessions as well as weekend retreats and classes. You can learn more at the websites listed below.
