Austin Shambhala Meditation Center

Austin Shambhala Meditation Center
Centre description
Established in 1976, the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center offers meditation instruction and classes in the tradition of Shambhala Buddhism, a form of Western Buddhism. This lineage teaches the Shambhala view of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.

We are part of Shambhala International, a worldwide community of meditation and retreat centers founded in 1973 by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, artist, author, and poet. Today, the Shambhala tradition is led by Trungpa Rinpoche's son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Our local center, centrally located just south of downtown Austin, offers free meditation instruction, public meditation hours, and a core curriculum of Shambhala Buddhist teachings, as well as training in contemplative arts. We invite you to explore our diverse programs, designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.

Dharmic activities
We offer many types of classes and programs, including introductory to advanced Shambhala Training Levels, introductory to advanced Hinayana and Mahayana budhist classes, and advanced Vajrayana programs and group practices, as well as various classes on the contemplative arts.
Community service
We run a prison outreach program offering meditation instruction to prison inmates, as well as a Care Team that works with Cancer and HIV/AIDS patients, in conjunction with The Care Communities.
