Welcome to Open Sky Shambhala
Open Sky Shambhala is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our group offers public meditation, a curriculum of Shambhala Buddhist teachings and open discussion that brings out the wisdom in all of us.
We are a friendly group of meditation practitioners interested in learning sitting meditation, being part of a community and simply practicing mindfulness with others; we encourage you to accompany us in our practice.
We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help Oregonians of all traditions discover their inherent clarity, gentleness and humor.
Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.
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.
