Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation

Shambhala Vision tells us that we can experience a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world, which is the innate wakefulness of human beings. Located in the Heart of Marin County in Northern California, Tamalpais Shambhala is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. In addition to free meditation instruction, offered at each of our public sitting practices, our center offers public meditation, a core curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices.

OUR TRUE NATURE

Our true nature is like a precious jewel: although it may be temporarily buried in mud, it remains completely brilliant and unaffected. We simply have to uncover it.
