Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

The Kailua Shambhala Meditation Group continues to offer meditation and Buddhist instruction in 2018 at Kailua Beach on the first Sunday of the month (as announced by our monthly newsletter) and occasional programs at other locations.  As part of the international Shambhala community of meditation and retreat centers, we are dedicated to the teaching of meditation, Tibetan Buddhism and other traditions grounded in mindful living.

Shambhala offers 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.  As a Shambhala Group, our offerings are currently limited.  However, we encourage everyone to attend programs at other meditation and retreat centers throughout the world, as well as take advantage of Shambhala online, until we can grow a larger Shambhala community in Hawai’i and start offering programming.

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