Community

Our community is diverse, capable, and heartfelt. Our members and friends include dedicated senior teachers who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years, and enthusiastic newcomers who are just discovering our teachings on realizing basic goodness and building enlightened society.

The Open Sky Eugene Meditation Group is committed to realizing the vision of an Enlightened Society.  We strive to “live the teachings” of the Buddha and the Shambhala Lineage. We began meeting in Springfield in 2003 and now in Eugene and look forward to providing the place and time for those who are interested to delve deeper into the teachings and their own basic nature.

We operate entirely on people’s volunteered time and donations.
