What is Shambhala Mountain Center?
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.
Take Down. You want to visit the land, and we could use your help! It’s time to take down the big and little tents. Bring your tent, warmies and rain gear. We’ll provide the meals and, in case of inclement weather, indoor housing. Pick your days between September 5 and 19, or come for the whole thing. Please let us know if and when you’re coming! Details here.
NEW: Stupa Beautification. Soon electricity will be restored to the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya and work can begin to clean up any smoke residue and such from the fire. The dates are not set yet, but if you’re interested, please email email@example.com with Volunteer in the subject line. Thank you in advance for your time and interest.
