Shambhala is a welcoming, inclusive, and diverse community inspired by the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature, our innate wisdom, can be developed so that it benefits our own lives and helps meet the many challenges facing the world.

Wherever you may be on your path, at the West Chester Shambhala Center you will find a supportive community and a wealth of opportunities for spiritual and personal growth.

We’d love to meet you! Here’s how you can get started:

Note: We will not be open for meditation on Tuesday, December 25th
