Community

Our community is diverse, capable, and heartfelt. Our members and friends include dedicated senior teachers who have walked the Shambhala Buddhist path for many years, and enthusiastic newcomers who are just discovering our teachings on realizing basic goodness and building enlightened society.

Here is some recent pictures from our Ikebana class. This was offered after our Sunday Open Community Practice. It was a lot of fun! Check out all upcoming events on the calendar or sign up for the newsletter!
