Welcome to the Flagstaff Shambhala Meditation Group
SMRquote.jpg


The Flagstaff Shambhala Meditation Group is a division of Shambhala International. The international community of Shambhala Buddhism was founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and is now led by the Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our lineage of teachers is rooted in the Kägyü and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

Our foundation practice is Shamatha–Vipassana (Mindfulness–Awareness) meditation. We offer free initial and ongoing meditation instruction. In general, our meetings consist of about a half-hour period of meditation, followed by tea and snacks and a talk, video, or discussion. We also offer a variety of contemplative meditation techniques and other practices. The series of Shambhala Training Levels are available at the Phoenix Shambhala Center and the Tucson Shambhala Center, as well as other Centers around the world.

We are a small, vibrant group of people who are concerned with developing our meditation practices and studying Shambhala and Buddhist teachings. We strive to help ourselves and others discover our inherent sanity, gentleness, and humor, and to develop confidence, equanimity, and compassion.
