Centre description
Please see the following for all updates and current information:


May 7, 2013 is the release date for Sakyong Mipham's new book (The Shambhala Principle: Discovering the Hidden Treasure of Humanity), set up as a dialog between his father (Chogyam Trungpa, author of Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior) and himself. This is a seminal event for the Shambhala community because it is a heartfelt exploration of the experience of basic goodness of self, others, and society--with all the challenges of our direct personal histories and news headlines that suggest perhaps we have lost hope in humanness.

Please send queries to the email address listed on this site.

We are gathering names for a Shambhala Level 1/2 meditation weekend. We generally present this only once a year (usually February). If we can collect 12 names, receive in advance donations for attending, we will offer this program in early 2014.

Please send an email to for more details (e.g., location, time ): fpjohns@gmail.com

What is our approach to meditation?
The purpose is to develop focused clarity in our everyday lives by training the 'muscle' of awareness and present-ness in formal meditation sessions. Our style of practice is with eyes open, accepting of and sensitivity to our five senses, using the breath to focus us back intot the present moment, and a gentle relationship with thinking and an accepting relationship to thoughts. While this might seem to be a focus on personal development, our ultimate objective is to be better able to help and heal the societies we find ourselves in: home, friends, and work.

What is our core message?
All thoughts, feelings, emotions, perceptions, speech and action are infused with the yearning to connect and understand our experience. The source of that yearning, we name basic goodness. When our view of our own experience collapses and contracts---stress, anger, resentment and guilt---we do not recognize basic goodness and we forget about our inherent worthiness and we cease caring for ourselves and others
