Welcome to the Shelburne Falls Shambhala Center

We invite you to explore our Center and programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and goodness. We offer public meditation and Shambhala Buddhist teachings, as well as connections to advanced contemplative practices at other Shambhala Centers.

Our beautiful, small building overlooks a quaint New England hilltown. We are by size and intent a study group of Shambhala students who practice together in the Center and who offer meditation programs. We also offer space for individual and group retreats, combining the shrine room with the upstairs retreat apartment and the adjacent large apartment building and its generous common space for group activities.

We have ongoing openings in our retreat apartment for solitary retreats. For more information about our retreat apartment, please click here.
