Welcome to Northern Rivers Shambhala!

The Northern Rivers Shambhala Meditation Group offers ongoing training in meditation to help us awaken our true nature and infuse our everyday activities with wisdom, compassion and a sense of humour.

Established in 2010, we are part of Shambhala International, a global community of meditation centres founded in 1973 by Tibetan Buddhist monk Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. The Shambhala community aspires to awaken our fundamental nature of basic goodness and this nature can be developed into daily life, radiating out to family, friends, community and family.

We provide:

  • Ongoing Offerings

Open House on Sunday mornings is a wonderful introduction to meditation and the Shambhala Path. All are welcome!  Join us for morning chants at 9.45am, sitting and walking meditation from 10.00am to 11.00am, followed by morning tea, a reading from books by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, or Pema Chödrön, and group discussion. Free meditation instruction is available. Open House is an opportunity to connect with other practitioners and meditators. We provide live online access if you are unable to participate in person.
