Welcome to the

Land  of Enchantment  

The Albuquerque Shambhala Meditation Center is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Our Center offers open meditation practice, 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 people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.

The Albuquerque Shambhala Center opened its doors in the fall of 2004 and has since been growing in size, interest and vision. We are a small Center with a big heart. As we expand our programming of practice, study and community building to meet the needs of our sangha, we keep at the core our open hearts and minds.

We are honored to be sharing these precious teachings with our community.
