header-IMG_7484-TR-centre-templateWelcome to Shambhala!

Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
The Bellingham Shambala Meditation Center is a part of Shambhala International, a worldwide community of urban and rural meditation practice and retreat centers founded by the Tibetan buddhist meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s son. Learn about our vision, lineage & community.
