Independent Meditation Center Guide

"When you believe you have some problem it means your practice is not good enough. When your practice is good enough, whatever you see, whatever you do, that is the direct experience of reality."
Shunryu Suzuki, Not Always So.

Center's Description
The Shambhala Centre of Vancouver combines the Dharmadhatu Buddhist Meditation Centre (founded in 1975) and the Shambhala Training Meditation Program (founded in 1980). Both are guided by life and teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and the students and teachers he inspired. We have operated from our present storefront location at 17th and Heather Street for the past 30 years. A lot of just sitting meditation has taken place on the cushions here, in Vancouver, as well as Shambhala Training programs, classes in Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, Ikebana, children's programs, and visits from teachers and meditation masters. For more on the organization we are part of, browse Shambhala International ( For local programs see our Calendar of Events.
