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. They also have a Heart of Recovery group that meets every Sunday afternoon, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. This meditation and discussion group combines Shambhala Buddhist meditation practice with individual paths of recovery from compulsive thoughts and behaviors.

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.
