SMC and the Great Stupa are closed to visitors through June.

We anticipate re-opening in July 2021. The land is fragile due to recovery from the Cameron Peak fire. Please check our Visitor Guidelines and
our COVID-19 policy before planning a visit to SMC. 

Nestled high in the Colorado Rockies, Shambhala Mountain Center (SMC) provides the perfect retreat setting for studying yoga, meditation and contemplative arts.

SMC combines natural beauty, unspoiled wilderness, blue skies and crisp mountain air with the comforts of a modern retreat campus. Our accommodations range from fine lodge rooms with private baths to shared same-gender dormitories and economically priced seasonal tents on wooded hillsides. Meals, with vegetarian options, are included.

This is a place where many wisdom traditions are hosted, and we welcome all people inspired to explore the nature of self and society. Join us and enjoy our beautiful location and warm hospitality.
