Welcome to Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver

For over 40 years, the Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver has offered Coloradans the opportunity to work with their minds and hearts through meditation. Our mission is to inspire an awake and compassionate society through personal and collective transformation.

We offer public meditation classes, mindfulness training workshops, and a wide range of teachings from the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. 

We welcome all new comers to our community to attend the Open House introduction to our Center and the practice of meditation every Sunday at 10am. Come and sit with us.
