Quick Description: Shambhala Meditation Centre is in downtown Nelson on Baker Street, on the third floor of Number 444. Long Description:This painting of the Shambhala Meditation Centre stairway was done in 2011 by Tea Preville, a Nelson resident whose body of work has become quite large. You'll find this stairway leading up to the Shambhala Meditation Centre on the south side of Baker Street, within the furthest west door of the 1897 three storey Lawrence’s Hardware Building, immediately east of the old Hudson's Bay Building, now the downtown Mall. Established in 1974, the Kootenay Shambhala Meditation Centre is a nonprofit, volunteer-run part of Shambhala, an international community of more than 200 meditation centres and groups founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our centre, located on the top floor of a heritage building in the heart of downtown Nelson, is home to a wonderfully diverse and vibrant group of about 40 members. Visit Instructions:Describe your visit, including the date, with as much detail as possible, and contribute at least one photo, original, different from those already in the gallery, if possible. Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness.
Shambhala International (Vajradhatu), Shambhala, Shambhala Meditation Center, Shambhala Training, Shambhala Center and Way of Shambhala are registered service marks of Shambhala USA". And so the lineage unfolds with even more characters, and ends where it begins – with you, the profound, brilliant Rigden. These classes will be taught by Bob Salskov who has been a Shambhalian for many year, working as a kusung for both Trungpa and Sakyang Mipham Rinpoches. Shambhala is an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and now led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Sundays—Free meditation instruction is also offered Sundays at 10am in conjunction with open meditation from 10am-noon. 5-6pm Wednesday—Sitting in our lovely Meditation Hall with others is a powerful way to practice meditation in community.
6-7pm Wednesday—A weekly gathering to experience the joy and goodness of community with interesting speakers and discussion. She is an artist of eclectic output and eclectic media, this one an oil on canvas, from her online gallery of churches in Nelson, BC. Unique in the world of Western Buddhism, this path combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala tradition of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.
We share a commitment to the path of awakening and the inspiration to create a society where people appreciate their innate goodness (which is personified as the Primordial Rigden, shown above right) and aspire to express it in every aspect of their lives. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
Starting with the Primordial Rigden, the richly-clothed royal image on our main Shambhala shrine, the chant continues with the naked Samantabhadra, the absolute, naked, sky-like primordial purity of the nature of our mind, and Vajradhara the image of Buddhahood itself. Each student will be asked to give a 10 minute presentation on one or more of the characters in the chant. After submitting your registration, you'll have an opportunity to pay online by clicking the "PayPal" button, which lets you pay by credit or debit card (it is not necessary to have a PayPal account). An ideal way to bring the simple yet profound and powerful practice of meditation into your everyday life.

Noted community leaders, performance artists and our own dharma teachers present interesting, inspiring and even provocative presentations. The cast continues with Padmakara, a real-life Tibetan boddhisattva with his girlfriend Yeshe Sogyal, alongside Prahevajra and Shri Simha, the masters of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection.
Salskov is well-versed in Buddhist thought and is a source of inspiration to our community. If you can pay online at the time of registration, please do so -- it really simplifies things for us. Taught by our qualified instructors, this basic meditation class is for beginners, as well as anyone who would like to refresh and enrich their understanding of meditation.
The meditation session concludes with a set of group chant-like songs common to all Shambhala meditation centers.
The Kagyu lineage cannot be forgotten and is represented by the greats: Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa, and Milarepa, masters of mahamudra.
