The Albuquerque Shambhala Meditation Center is part of Shambhala, a global community of more than 200 meditation centers and groups founded by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

A small center with a big heart, the Albuquerque Center opened its doors in the fall of 2004 and has since been growing in size, interest, and vision. As we expand our programming of practice and study to meet the needs of our community, we keep at the core our open hearts and minds.

Our center offers meditation instruction and practice, programs and classes on Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, as well as training in contemplative arts. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness, fearlessness, and humor.
