New Center website logo
To help raise funds for the renovation and move, we have launched a fundraising campaign for our new space in Sorrento Mesa, which is designed to be uplifting, welcoming and community-based. This fundraising campaign is an opportunity for our Sangha to unite in an uplifting effort that will culminate in arriving at our new Center refreshed and even more engaged in Shambhala Vision. To that end, we ask everyone to join us, participate, and help us take flight! To learn more visit the New Center Campaign website.

Fundraising Update
We are now up to $10,600 toward our goal of $20,000! If you have not yet contributed to our Move, 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!

We have already received many great donations to the new center include folding chairs, office furniture, community room furniture, refrigerator, toaster oven and microwave. We’re continuing to update the Giving Tree with new opportunities for much-needed items. Please browse the Giving Tree tags at the Center and see how you can contribute!



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.
