The monthly full moon Shambhala Sadhana gatherings are a time to practice, have food, and enjoy conversation together as a community.  All members—including their families—are welcome!

The Kongma Sakyong has requested that all Shambhala Centers host a monthly Shambhala Sadhana practice and celebratory meal for all members of our Shambhala community.  The emphasis is on collective practice, gathering and celebrating society as a group of people at all stages on the path. The aspiration is for a consistent, celebratory, and profound community experience in which new and seasoned warriors are all practicing and in conversation together.

The Sakyong composed the Shambhala Sadhana in Nepal in January, 2011 at the end of a year of retreat.  During his retreat, he contemplated basic goodness, both of self and society, and the Shambhala Sadhana arose in his mind as a way to celebrate and strengthen our understanding of basic goodness and enlightened society.

The Shambhala Sadhana encourages us to experience basic goodness personally and societally. Good conversation inspires us and increases our relationships with others. Celebration helps us to gather together and radiate goodness in our cities, towns, and communities.

These monthly Shambhala Sadhana gatherings are specifically meant for Shambhala center members. The intention is for all members, including their families, to feel included.  We are a society.
