Shambhala Meditation Center of San Antonio

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.

For your first visit, we highly recommend attending one of our Open Houses.

Join us for open meditation sessions every Tuesday and Thursday from 7p-8p, and Sunday mornings 9a-12:00 noon. Open House is the first Tuesday every month.
