Public Talk - The Shambhala Buddhist Path: Wisdom Teachings for the Current Era
10 Mar 2015
"With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple and non-sectarian ways to work with ourselves and too share our understanding with others." --Chögyam Trungpa - Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

Hello and welcome!


Welcome to the Wellington Shambhala Meditation Centre, now located at Level 6, 75 Ghuznee Street, Wellington. We are part of Shambhala International, a worldwide community of meditation centres founded by meditation master Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and led today by his son Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Their teachings bring together three streams of wisdom:

  • the Kagyu and Nyingma teachings of Tibetan Buddhism
  • the wisdom teachings of Shambhala

For more information about the source of the teachings click here.

Our meditation centre offers the following:

  • individual meditation instruction
  • group meditation practice every Tuesday evening and Sunday morning
  • weekend programmes
  • residential retreats for up to one month

Please join us any Tuesday evening for free meditation instruction and an introduction to the Wellington Shambhala Centre. Click here for more information about our Open House nights.
