Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

The Kailua Shambhala Meditation Center has been located on the Windward side of Oahu, Hawaii since 2004.  It will officially close on January 15, 2017, although meditation and Buddhist activities will continue on the beach and at people’s homes.  As part of the international Shambhala community of meditation and retreat centers, we have been dedicated to the teaching of meditation, Tibetan Buddhism and other traditions grounded in mindful living.

We offer basic meditation classes, Buddhist instruction, and Shambhala Training – a progressive series of weekend workshops that helps students establish a personal meditation practice in order to engage more fully and compassionately in the world.

We warmly welcome people from any spiritual tradition who would like to learn about the everyday benefits of meditation.  Chairs and cushions are provided for your comfort.
