“Our life is an endless journey… The practice of meditation provides a vehicle to travel on that road.” - Chogyam Trungpa

Throughout history, men and women have aspired to create societies that enable them to express the dignity of human existence and to lead meaningful lives within a flourishing culture. This is the vision of Shambhala.

The Open Sky Eugene Shambhala Meditation Group welcomes everyone interested in the practice and study of meditation as a means of expanding gentleness, fearlessness, and nonaggression into all areas of life. We are a small and enthusiastic group of people who meet to familiarize ourselves with the mind through meditation, study and contemplation.

This Group is one of more than 200 Shambhala Meditation Centers world-wide offering Shambhala Buddhist teachings through programs, meditation and other contemplative disciplines. This path, unique in the world of Western Buddhism, combines the teachings of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala principles of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.

 Our center is located upstairs at 100 West Q. Street, Springfield, and is a non-profit volunteer organization.

Practice and education gatherings are listed in full on the Programs tab of this website.  To find out more about becoming a Member, please see the "Community" tab.
