The Shambhala Meditation Center of Chicago is part of an international community of over 200 centers. The center offers programs and classes in mindfulness meditation and the contemplative arts, free individual meditation instruction, and a vibrant, diverse community of members and friends who study and practice together.
The center provides a warm, genuine basis for realizing the full potential of our inherent wisdom. Through the practice of mindfulness, we learn to touch in with that wisdom, allowing us to live our lives with a mind that is more present and fully engaged. Waking up to our own inherent goodness has a natural impact on our family members, friends, co-workers, and our world at large.
The Shambhala Meditation Center of Chicago was founded in the early 1970's,
