It is the Shambhala view …

That every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be cultivated through meditation, following ancient principles and it can be further developed in daily life, so that it radiates to family, friends, community and society.

The Sydney Shambhala group offers guided meditation instruction and teachings to the public at our Newtown venue every Tuesday night, except for the first Tuesday of the month. Several times a year local or international senior teacher come and teach a Shambhala Training Level which is part of the Way of Shambhala curriculum. Shambhala Training is a sequence of contemplative weekend workshops, suitable for anyone looking to explore the transformative benefits of meditation.
