The Davis Shambhala Meditation Center offers a one-hour sitting meditation practice in-person at the Center every Sunday morning at 9, and we continue this Sunday sitting via Zoom for anyone that prefers that option.

Every weekday morning at 7, we gather on Zoom, and on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, we also sit in-person in our shrine room. The center follows all state and local health requirements and protocols. 

The DSMC also offers online programs. Get updates and announcements by signing up for our email list on the right.  (If you’re viewing on a mobile devise scroll to the bottom of the page and click on ‘sidebar contents’).

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.

Learn to meditate. Connect with community, grow confidence, mindful-awareness, and compassion. Meditation instruction is available free of charge.
