The Sonoma Shambhala Meditation Center is gathering online. Please see our program listings for online meditation practice and program opportunities.



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. We offer a friendly, uplifted environment in which to explore meditation and the qualities it can bring to your life. 


Shambhala is an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.  The current lineage holder is his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.  You are invited to read about the Shambhala Vision and Lineage.
