We have now moved, and will be concluding our fundraising efforts October 1. We had a wonderful Convocation last week and would like to share a lovely background video and photos from the Convocation. Please take a few minutes to enjoy.

We are now over $16,000 toward our goal of $20,000! This effort has been an opportunity for our Sangha to unite in an exciting and challenging group effort that has invigorated and uplifted all the Sangha members that have participated. It’s a heartening stance for all of us. To learn more visit the New Center Campaign website.

In addition to your contributions for the Sitathon and Convocation, we have already received many great donations to the new center including folding chairs, office furniture, community room furniture, refrigerator, toaster oven and microwave. We will continue to update the Giving Tree with new opportunities for much-needed items, as we know we will discover additional needs in the future. Please browse the Giving Tree tags at the Center and see how you can contribute!

Finally, if you have not yet contributed to this effort, please consider giving even a dollar so that you and every Sangha member will have had a hand in this important transition. The Center belongs to all of us!
How to donate



Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
