The St. Margarets Bay Shambhala Centre is home to a diverse community who share a genuine connection to contemplative practice and the aspiration to realize a more wakeful, sane society. “Sangha” is the Sanskrit term for “community of practitioners” – one of the “three jewels” of Buddhism.
Friends and members of the Shambhala Centre are welcome to attend celebrations, practice events, meetings and gatherings of special interest groups.
The Shambhala Buddhist path, unique in the world of Western Buddhism, combines the teachings of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala view of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world. Programs in Shambhala Buddhist teachings, meditation and other contemplative disciplines are offered as well as free individual meditation instruction.
