The Shambhala Center's offerings are guided and inspired by the course of practice and study set out by the Vidyadhara, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche during his life, and by his son and successor, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Several of the Center's members have been trained to teach and to provide ongoing meditation instruction as students proceed on their journey. We have been meeting in the Upper Valley since the early 1980s and were previously known as the Hanover Shambhala Meditation Group.
The Center consists of people who are involved in the Shambhala Buddhist practice of meditation, at all stages of the journey; some members have been practicing meditation for twenty five years, and others have started practicing within the last few months or weeks.
How can you stay informed of events at our Center?
We maintain a mailing list of postal and email addresses. We primarily communicate via our email list and "late-breaking news" is always sent out via e-mail. Please go to the home page and join our email list if you would like to be kept informed of classes, events and activities at the center and in the area.
How do we finance our Center?
Support for the Shambhala Center of White River's existence and activities is based on the meditation practice of its members and friends. The Center ideally offers a space of basic sanity where people can begin to experience their own basic goodness. This is possible through everyone's commitment to meditation practice. The most basic support one can offer is to come and practice. Members pay monthly dues, and we accept donations from friends. Our class fees also help offset our expenses.
We are pleased to be able to welcome you into our new Center. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them. You may reach us at email@example.com
