The Shambhala Meditation Center of Portland is part of the global community of Shambhala. Our purpose is to contribute to a society informed by meditation  — with a culture of kindness and wakefulness, embracing the inherent goodness of every person. Our programs, groups, and community gatherings offer a way to train in spiritual warriorship, and study and practice these teachings from the Shambhala tradition in everyday life. Please join us in this journey!

Please Note: Our center is fully virtual now, until we find a new physical location. Programs and groups are mostly being held virtually over Zoom, with some socially-distanced events held outdoors.
