We offer a wide range of programs, classes, and opportunities for ongoing practice. Here you’ll find free meditation instruction, open meditation practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights, and an open house every Sunday morning.
Located at 2288 Fulton Street, Berkeley is one of the oldest Shambhala centers in the mandala. For over thirty years we have offered the ground of Shambhala Dharma to the Bay Area.
