Welcome to Open Sky Shambhala

We believe meditation is life transforming and invite people of all faith and non-faith backgrounds and traditions to join us for meditation, classes, retreats, book-study and community. ¬†One need not be “Shambhala” – only the intention to bring about mindfulness, peace and harmony to their lives and the world.

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.

Open Sky Shambhala is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers. Our group offers public meditation, a curriculum of Shambhala Buddhist teachings and open discussion that brings out the wisdom in all of us.
