Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.
The Shambhala Meditation Center of San Antonio is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our center offers public meditation, a core curriculum of Shambhala Buddhist teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.
We offer free meditation instruction at 7:00 PM on Tuesday evenings and from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Sunday mornings. Please join us for our regular public sit times on Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 8:00 PM and on Sunday mornings from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
Get to know the Sakyong! Beginning in January, our weekly Thursday evening meditation will include the viewing of a short recorded talk by our teacher and lineage holder, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. We will sit for 10 minutes, watch a brief talk by the Sakyong on varying topics — with discussion if desired — followed by a continuation of the meditation session. Donation of $2-$5 is requested.
Please contact us with any questions and we look forward to meeting you soon!
