Brunswick Portland Shambhala Meditation Center offers numerous programs and events. You will find links here.

For the beginner, the number and types of offerings may sometimes seem confusing, even intimidating.  You’ll notice however that each program/event has an e-mail address attached.  Just click that to inquire as to whether this particular offering is right for you.

Personal meditation instruction is always available and if you are new to the center it is often possible to meet with an instructor prior to the program you will be attending. Just ask.

We also have a Generosity Policy.
