The Montréal Shambhala Meditation Centre offers practice and study in the lineage of Shambhala Buddhism, unique in the world of Western Buddhism. This lineage combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala view of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world. We are part of Shambhala International, an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centres founded by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Our centre, centrally located in downtown Montréal, offers regular public meditation, a core curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help Montrealers of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humour.
