Welcome to Open Sky Shambhala

Many centers in our Shambhala community are offering online meditation and classes.  We have listed a few of them on our calendar and there are many more!  Please see this regional calendar for more offerings:  https://eugene.shambhala.org/programs/?view=regional (Please be patient as this may take a few minutes to load)

In support of the containment efforts of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all in-person center events until further notice. Please check our calendar for opportunities to assemble online.

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.  

“With the great problems facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple and non-sectarian ways to work with ourselves and to share our understanding with others. The Shambhala teachings or “Shambhala vision” as this approach is more broadly called, is one such attempt to encourage a wholesome existence for ourselves and others.” – Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, author of Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior.

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.
