With some sadness we announce that our last public sitting Open House at the Masonic Lodge was held Sunday March 24, 2019

Beautiful seasonal photo with message: 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.

Our last day of tenancy at the Masonic Lodge is April 30 (and our last public sitting was on March 24). This is a very poignant time for all of us and as we go through this dissolution and contemplate our next steps, we want to remind everyone that it is our aspiration to maintain a “strong heart” of connection with those in the local community who wish to continue practicing, studying and being together.

We will periodically post events here and send announcements via our email list as developments unfold. If you currently receive the Northern California Shambhala newsletter, there are other local area sanghas (Sonoma and San Rafael) that have weekly public sitting times.
