Maine Shambhala Summer

“Embodying goodness, manifesting kindness, we find our genuine human nature.”  SMR

 

Welcome to Maine Shambhala Meditation Centers. 

We currently offer classes and retreats in Brunswick, Portland and Rockland. 

Our website offers a lot of information regarding local offerings, information about meditation, Shambhala International,  our structure, contacts and more.  

However  if you would be more comfortable connecting with a person directly, Please contact us as [email protected]. We will be in touch shortly after receiving your inquiry.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Cheerful Summer here in Maine!

Gardens are growing…visitors have been arriving…. beachside is inviting.

The collaborative scheduling team from both the Portland and Brunswick centers have been busy working on the Fall 2016 schedule. Multiple meetings, engaging conversations, and many follow-up emails have helped to shape the offerings for the coming months.

We invite you to scroll down through this email to get a flavor of what is planned for the balance of  2016.

Many of the programs are up on the website for registration (links are provided)- a few more still need to be fleshed out before uploading.

And we are not finished yet!

Please note some of the new offerings as well as the old favorite. We look forward to spending time with all of you.
