The Shambhala Meditation Center of Santa Rosa is foremost a community where people of all traditions can come together to practice meditation, study the dharma, and support each others life journey. We aspire to create an enlightened society based on goodness, dignity, wisdom, and compassion.
We are part of an international network of more than 170 urban meditation centers and rural retreat centers founded in 1973, by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The Center offers free meditation instruction and group practice sessions, a curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, and training in contemplative culture and arts.
