Welcome to Northern Rivers Shambhala!

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:

PLEASE NOTE: Open House has moved! As of Sunday 4th of August 2019 we are meeting on Sunday afternoons from 2.00pm -4.00pm at the Inner Light Centre, upstairs at 131 Keen Street, Lismore NSW. 

  • Open House is a wonderful introduction to meditation and the Shambhala Path. All are welcome!  Join us for sitting and walking meditation from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, including an afternoon tea break, reading from books by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, or Pema Chödrön, and group discussion. Free meditation instruction is available.  We provide live online access if you are unable to participate in person.
  • Monthly Nynthun is a full day of sitting on the last Sunday of each month, from 10.00am to 4.30pm. The day includes periods of sitting meditation interspersed with walking meditation, gentle stretching, and time for group discussion and reflection. A shared lunch provides the opportunity to continue to explore our discussions informally, enjoy good food or just catch up with your fellow meditators.
  • 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.
