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!

“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace.”
Let’s provide an autumn of abundance for our neighbors.

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.
