Our Shambhala Center is home to a wonderfully diverse and vibrant group of 40 members, including dedicated senior teachers who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years and enthusiastic newcomers who are just discovering our teachings on basic goodness and enlightened society. We share a commitment to the path of awakening and the inspiration to create a society of people who acknowledge and express the innate goodness of all.
