About Shambhala



SHAMBHALA takes its name from a legendary kingdom famous for being an enlightened society. Today, the global Shambhala network brings together people of all ages and from all walks of life who are interested in exploring our own minds, transforming our experience, and awakening our potential for enlightened society.

Shambhala is based on trust in human dignity. We offer a path of meditation practice and contemplative arts oriented towards modern life. Our communities around the world cultivate kindness, bravery, and genuine dialogue. Our vision is to inspire compassionate, sustainable, and just human societies.

There are thousands of members and friends of Shambhala on all continents. We have online communities and more than 200 Shambhala centres and groups, as well as individual members, located in major cities, towns , and in rural setting in over 50 different countries.

The Truro Shambhala Meditation Group provides a variety of ways for newcomers to learn about Shambhala worldwide, as well as information on regional programs, and what our local group can offer.
