Shambhala Nashville Logo


The Nashville Shambhala Meditation Group is part of an international 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. Shambhala vision is rooted in the contemplative teachings of Buddhism, yet is a fresh expression of the spiritual journey for our time.

We offer the opportunity to practice mindfulness-awareness sitting and walking meditation with others in a group setting. Retreats and training in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition are held several times a year, as are celebrations, community gatherings, and other special events.

We invite you to join us!
