Welcome to the Shelburne Falls Shambhala Center

Please spend a few minutes to explore our Center.   Here we offer public meditation and Shambhala Buddhist teachings in a beautiful setting. Our small stone building also provides space for individual and group retreats by combining the shrine room with the upstairs retreat apartment.

Our regular programming is always ongoing. To view ongoing programs please use the What We Offer menu at the top of the page.
