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.
