Welcome Tallahassee Shambhala!

Shambala Meditation Center

We are pleased to announce that the Tallahassee Shambhala group has joined the TBC sangha. They offer meditation practice at the TBC every Tuesday at noon and Wednesday evening at 7:15 p.m. These are open to all meditators, beginning and experienced.

The Tallahassee Shambhala Buddhist Meditation Group is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, artist, author and poet. The community is now led by his son and spiritual heir, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. The Shambhala vision is one that emphasizes the cultivation of fearless, gentle, and intelligent action in the world. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.

Monday Morning Meditation -- 7:00 - 8:30 a.m.


Launch your week with silence and intention. Beginning Monday, April 21st, the TBC will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. for meditation practice. This will be unstructured and self-guided; you are welcome to sit or walk as you wish, or even do prostrations or yoga. The only requirement is that you maintain silence and not disturb others. Come by for a few minutes, or stay the whole hour and a half. This is your practice.

Schedule of Teachings

Drupon Rinpoche is the spiritual director of Drong Ngur Jangchubling, a Buddhist center in Wesley Chapel, FL. Rinpoche has completed many retreats, including the three-year retreat on the Five-Fold Path of Mahamudra and the Six Yogas of Naropa. Based on his accomplishments, H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche bestowed him the title of Drupon (retreat master). We are delighted to have Drupon Rinpoche teach on the Yangzab Ngondro, which contains the complete outer and inner preliminary practices of the Buddhist path. The Yangzab Ngondro is the gateway to the vast Yangzab cycle of teachings and practices. These teachings are available to anyone regardless of prior experience.
