Cleveland Shambhala Meditation Center

We are part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, now directed by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. We offer public sitting practice and instruction, a core curriculum of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as training in advanced contemplative practices. We invite you to explore our diverse programs designed to help people of all traditions discover their inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.

We have provided meditation and Buddhist studies to northeast Ohio for over 20 years.
