We are moving to 6727 Flanders Drive, STE 102 in Sorrento Mesa.

On Friday July 25, the San Diego Shambhala Meditation Center signed a lease for a new, and larger space. Renovations have started with an anticipated move-in date around September 25, 2014.

To help raise funds for the renovation and move, we are launching 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.

Update: We are now up to $10,177 toward our goal of $20,000! The Convocation will occur on the afternoon of Saturday, September 20th, so please save the date. 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!

Meanwhile, remodeling is ongoing and looking good! It’s happening!



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.
