The Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and now under the direction of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our center offers public meditation, a core curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices.
We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.
Everyone is invited to practice Shamatha, or “peaceful abiding” meditation at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver. On Sundays, we practice from 9 a.m. until noon, and on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.. We also offer a time on Wednesday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. You are invited to participate in all or part of these sessions.
You can learn to meditate at our center. Instruction by authorized staff is always free of charge.
Extending love and compassion toward others in contemplative practice is a rehearsal for stepping beyond stinginess and self-centeredness in daily life. Eventually our training will give us the power to flip the mind instantly by letting go of the “me plan” and considering the happiness of somebody else, whatever we’re experiencing, wherever we are.”
