Welcome to Northern Rivers Shambhala!

**Changes to open-house offerings due to COVID 19**

During this challenging time of physical distancing, we will offer open house online every Sunday from 9.00am to 11.00am NSW time. Email [email protected] for the link.

The Northern Rivers Shambhala Meditation Group offers ongoing training in mindfulness-awareness meditation and the Shambhala principle of basic goodness — that we are all, at the core, worthy and complete.  Meditation helps us wake up to our lives 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.

Ongoing Offerings:

  • Open House is a wonderful introduction to meditation and the Shambhala Path. All are welcome!  Join us for sitting and walking meditation the first Sunday of the Month from 9.30 to 11.30am, including a morning tea break, reading from books by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, or Pema Chödrön, and group discussion. Free meditation instruction is available.  We meet at the Innert Light Centre, upstairs at 131 Keen Street, Lismore NSW. We also provide live online access if you are unable to participate in person.


  • Way of Shambhala programs are an extensive path of training in meditation and wisdom teachings. The programs are open to all and are recommended for both new and experienced meditators. Detailed information on programs may be viewed by clicking on Way of Shambhala link.
