Welcome to the St. John’s Shambhala
Meditation Group

The St. John’s Shambhala Meditation Group is part of Shambhala, a global community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and further developed by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our group presently meets at 120 LeMarchant Rd in St. John’s where we offer a periodic teachings and training workshops, and a variety of in depth Buddhist and Shambhala programs.

Meditation: Our Core Practice

The practice of meditation is the heart of all programs offered by the St. John’s Shambhala Meditation Group. Meditation is a way of slowing down and getting to know yourself, a way of making friends with your life and developing strength of mind, and a way of synchronizing body and mind in the present moment. It is a way of becoming fully present and appreciating your world.
