Welcome to the Edmonton Shambhala Centre

The Edmonton Shambhala Centre is part of Shambhala, an international community of 214 meditation centres and groups founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

The Shambhala Buddhist path, unique in the world of Western Buddhism, combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala principles of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.
